For Dutch duo VANTOT, it’s all in the name. Literally translated from Dutch to mean ‘from to’, VANTOT focuses on the entire process, starting with a technique and ending with the product. The pair strives to find new applications for innovations in everyday life, and it’s not only new-found technologies which have seized their interest. Serving as a guiding light in the duo’s work, antiquated techniques are put to good use in modern day outlets, mutually benefiting from today’s updated knowledge base. Take electricity. Although light bulbs have been around for centuries, innovations – such as the rise of the LEDs – have made continuous evolution possible. And today, electronic devices operate on much lower voltages than ever before, significantly decreasing its hazardous aspects. While direct contact with electricity – and light – used to be a no go, recent developments illuminate completely new realms for the old technology.

VANTOT is represented at Salone Satellite and Bar Anne. Bar Anne is in the historical Museo Diocesano. The architecs of Space Encounters designed a fifty meter long and five meter wide bar that derives its name from curator Anne van der Zwaag. She selected a group of talented designers. All make something that benefits the interior of the bar. VANTOT literally puts new lighting in the spotlight and together with Klaas Kuiken the studio will design a special room. Together the designers create a Gesamtkunstwerk, an usable exposition, relax hang out, meeting and networking place and creative hub. A place to get together for a bee.
