About the artist
Studio Toer is a multidisciplinary design collective based in Eindhoven. That immediately makes them part of the high-tech city of light and GLOW. Their work is playful and seemingly simple. Studio Toer was founded in 2011 by Castor Bours (1984) and Wouter Widdershoven (1986). The duo enjoys new experiences and exploring new paths. With backgrounds in art, interactive design and their strong explorative and experimental approach, they are able to push both the aesthetic and technical boundaries of design using diverse media.
Studio Toer has garnered global attention with projects like ‘Cumulus’, a stand-alone parasol that uses solar energy to inflate to a cloud-like form. ‘Fiet’, a light sculpture that reacts to changes in its environment, and ‘Shaped by Time’, a clock that forms itself over time. Toer’s interactive installations have been presented at numerous international festivals and can be admired worldwide.
