Wait, what’s a “thang?” Â I think it’s a thang. Â I thought, or thunk, anyway that the thing was a thang, but really, who knows what the difference is between things and thangs? Â Not this guy.
Uh, hi everybody!
I found this really cool deconstructed floodlight design from Netherlands-based studioÂ Nieuwe Heren. Â The project was for an expo, but it’s now on sale at the Nieuwe Heren website. Â It’s a conglomeration of wood and concrete, artfully constructed, and with lots of weird symbolic irony, don’t you think? Â I kinda love it.
Check out these shots from a few places about the deconstructed floodlight – some from the Design Milk blog, and some from the Nieuwe Heren website itself. Â Pretty cool stuff, especially the process shots and the sketch!
Isn’t that thing (thang) awesome?!
Cutting the interior ribs – don’t tell OSHA! Â Oh wait, this is in the Netherlands.
De-burring of the internal support tube.
Making of the concrete base. Â CONCRETE BASE!
I love this – the process sketch! Â This is probably one of my favorite parts of design – seeing the thoughts on paper.
I put together a gallery of the images below – images of the extra “thang” is in the gallery – a cable reel design that studio Nieuwe Heren designed, again I think for an expo. Â Whatever it’s for, it’s awesome. Â Check it out!

Cool work, Nieuwe Heren!
