Karven was set up by the talented VanJoost in the Netherlands where they strive to collect ideas, experiences and designs from across the globe. The Roest (Dutch for rust) lighting collection is made from real rust to create natural colours and unpretentious simplicity. 

The lack of complexity is highlighted in this series inspired by rough materials around VanJoost’s studio. The introvert shapes and rough oxidized surfaces appeal to the sense of typicality.
