Rick Tegelaar (Rotterdam, 1986) graduated with honours from the ArtEZ Arnhem product design department in 2011. Since then he works independently from his studio and workshop in Arnhem.
As a material-oriented designer, Rick’s work is characterized by the use of very uncommon materials, finding new beautifully shaped forms with an innovative approach.
Rick is interested in machinery and mechanical processes since childhood. This fascination for engineering, combined with his delicate sense of esthetics, are reflected in his designs, which shed a new light on undervalued materials and existing techniques.
“I’ve always gotten a lot of satisfaction out of the processes of making something. When I was a kid I was always playing with technical Lego. Even now, I sometimes use Lego for making a scale model. I’m a designer who combines thinking and doing for developing new designs.”

For a fluent dimming behaviour we advice a dimmer that is compatible with the following specs:

Dimmer type: Trailing edge / Reverse phase
Please note the functioning of the dimmer and the power supply combination can never be predicted, it always needs to be tested in practice.
