Wannes Royaards: Lloyd light, multiplex, highgloss aluminium, silver or gold, 2004. Commissioned by Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy.
Royaards' iconic bedside light is usually combined with night table in the same style. It was originally conceived as a Christmas Tree around 2000, when highgloss aluminium first became available. Later it was developed into a light looking like a pictogram.
Royaards’ furniture and kitchen design is clear and functional, with a frivolous touch. Raised in a family of creatives, he was trained at Piet Hein Eek’s Eindhoven workshop and educated at the Amsterdam Vocational College for Woodworking, Furniture and Interior Design.
Lloyd Hotel & Cultural Embassy also have television-tables, children’s furniture, a fridge, a wardrobe and a floor-lamp by Royaards.
