Interview with Sarah Dehandschutter at Monday 18th of March 2013
Sarah Dehandschutter
FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
SD: I have always had the urge to adjust my close enviroment to my taste. I studied interior design, but the freedom to produce my own ideas, not bound by the custumers wishes appealed more to me. I travelled a lot in afrika, the far and middle east, and could express my inspiration in my lamps. Along the way I got more and more interested in the properties of the materials I worked with and the possibileties they offered. I also started to develop one idea to its perfection, instead of making all unique pieces. This led me more in the direction of being a designer.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
SD: I have my own workshop where I produce my lamps. After a visit I make something tailored to benefit the interior of the client.

FS: What is "design" for you?
SD: For me design is the urge to create objects for daily use that cares the senses, it is intricitly connected to the perception and conception of beauty.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
SD: From the beginning I have only been designing lamps. The light brings an extra dimension, and there are less ergonomical limits than with other furniture.

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
SD: I have worked with metals, ceramics, wood and cloth which I all like in their own way. Recently I have mainly been exploring the possibilitys of cloth streched over bars in different forms, and it remains very challanging.

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
SD: Before I start creating

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
SD: The natural beauty of the form, and ofcourse the light it shines.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
SD: Expectation and frustration.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
SD: Happyness

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
SD: Does it make me happy?

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
SD: Originally my fascination for arabic culture was my source of inspiration, I gathered inspiration travelling, but for long it is my own work that inspires me, to try out the next possibility.

FS: How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
SD: My designs develop in a very organic way, since I work directly with the material without drawing. The design results out of the interaction between the idea and the natural limits of the material. Therefore the forms resemble natural forms, like shells or flower petals.

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
SD: I usually do have an image in my head, but ofcourse it is quiet vague. I have to make it and see what it looks like from different view points, and how the electricity etc. can fit in. Since I make single pieces to sell, I usually make it for a while, to get to know the form better, and when I think it is right, I can have a mould made of it.


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
