Glithero are British designer Tim Simpson and Dutch designer Sarah van Gameren, who met and studied at the Royal College of Art. From their studio in London they create time-based processes that give birth to unique and wonderful products, furniture and installations. The work is presented in a broad spectrum of media but follows a consistent conceptual path; to capture and present the beauty in the moment that things are made. From machines that miraculously create wax chandeliers from strung wick, a pouring slide that becomes a 10 metre long poly-concrete table, to ceramics that turn vivid blue with UV light, the key characteristics of their work are time and transformation. With their unique concoction of creation-performance they aim to bridge creative disciplines and make works that delight and capture the imagination of their audience.
In the last year Glithero have worked with or along side a number of commercial clients as well as institutions including installations for the Design Miami Art Fair, commissions for the Tilburg Textile Museum and a large-scale multi-project work for the Zuiderzee museum that will tour through 2014. Their works are held in a number of collections such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Israel Museum, and the Stedelijk Museum in Den Bosch. They are represented by Fumi gallery in London and Gallerie Vivid in Rotterdam.
