COHORS

COHORS creates

The design label COHORS creates a stage for designers and artists. It enables them to express and excel, experiment and explore. COHORS offers time and space for inspiration and ideas, success and failure.

Obviously, you are more than welcome to buy our designers’ products. But before and beyond that, we showcase their unique artistic views.

TROUVÉ – THE LAMP

What more is a lamp than an idea of integrating light and space? Much more. In the case of Trouvé, the lamp is not only the sum of many ideas, it is more than a lamp. Trouvé is a world of curves and colours, sounds and impressions, images and experiences.

THE DESIGN

This fresh industrial design by Dutch product designer Marten van Middelkoop was created around two ideas. On the one hand Van Middelkoop admires the balanced and modest forms of Japanese aesthetics. On the other hand, he took a very practical approach towards the idea that a heatsink (an aluminum cooling element) is the most ideal encapsulation for a LED lamp that doesn’t need to be disguised as something else. While researching the many forms and shapes of aluminum heatsinks, he came across the ideal shape to create a table lamp that projects light towards the lampshade and reflects it downwards.

But there’s more!

COHORS invited five more artists to respond autonomously on this design from their own perspectives, enhancing and enriching the design. So, when you buy TROUVÉ, you’re are actually buying a box with a complete art- and design exhibition.
