The Standard has all the makings of a modern classic.
Designed with an eye to both beauty and function by one of Belgium's most talked about young designers, Sylvain Willenz, The Standard has all the makings of a modern classic. Its beautiful soft light makes this an ideal lamp for the dining room or above an office table. Its sense of purity and balance make it a pleasure to behold.
After graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, Sylvain Willenz opened his design studio, Sylvain Willenz Design Office (SWDO), in Brussels. Since then he has established an impressively extensive collection of work ranging from lighting to products, electronics to furniture. “I want my designs to be clean, elegant, joyful yet classic at the same time,” Sylvain tells us.
In our own humble opinion, his Standard lamp for Menu is an instant classic. It’s an inspired take on the traditional industrial lamp – but instead of metal this version is made from one blown glass piece (no mean feat).
