Within the world of lighting, not many designers experiment in such a progressive and idiosyncratic way as VANTOT does. From LED to solar cells, Esther Jongsma and Sam van Gurp have developed into true light specialists within their studio, VANTOT. Originally creating innovative LED lighting for interiors, the designers are now taking new steps in public spaces.

Lighting experts Sam van Gurp and Esther Jongsma both graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven. They founded studio VANTOT in this city in 2015. Here, they experiment and unite technology and aesthetics in their designs. The designers create lighting designs for interiors, such as Limpid Lights, Current Currents and VVV, a circuit of linked elements that together form an architectural curtain of light. They now also design for public spaces with Thank you for the sun and SUNSEEKER. They work for national and international clients, for collections as well as on their own initiative.
