As of 26 October, 2017 I am no longer maintaining the Unofficial Archive. The current version will stay online – however I will not fix any issues or add more works.

Conductive by Daan Spanjers


A tabletop mapped with lines of metal. The conductive threads of copper feed into the electricity grid and special light objects switch on as soon as their legs make contact with the tabletop. The intensity of the light changes across the surface. In the middle of the table it is calm and soft to be suitable for dining. Away from the centre the lights burn brighter, good for reading. ‘I have exposed the technology that is usually hidden in all electrical appliances,’ says Daan Spanjers. Conductive presents the aesthetics of technology as an integrated part of the design.
