Share the Vibe: Aptum
The new Share the Vibe is a long-cherished dream come true: Aptum, a lighting company consisting of design duo Tineke Beunders and Nathan Wierink, presents an impressive vibe. Refined, technical, and above all, a tight piece of craftsmanship made on Eindhoven soil.
One thing's clear: there is a lot of talent in Eindhoven. Aptum can also count itself among them. After graduating in 2008, their career took off with studio Ontwerpduo, and they made the well-known candle Tallow. After ten years, they specialized even more in lighting under APTUM, which means adaptability. This ties in with their designs: custom-made and unique. On that note, they got started on their very own Share the Vibe.
Working, living, welding, drawing, grinding. With this video, we want to show the high degree of handicraft and craftsmanship behind it. Made by hand and with love in the middle of Eindhoven."
That describes Eindhoven perfectly. The biggest things happen, but at the same time, the city is friendly, according to the duo. The creativity and possibilities within the city walls stand head and shoulders above them. "Making plans, working together. In our field, with Dutch Design Week, Brainport, GLOW, TU/e in Eindhoven, we're in the right place." Want to see how their lighting system Contour transforms into a Vibe? Tineke and Nathan take you through a day in the life of Aptum in their Share the Vibe video.
