Glithero is the London design partnership of Tim Simpson (UK) and Sarah van Gameren (NL), who met as students at the Royal College of Art. Early in their collaboration they published a manifesto which declared the transparency of their process. “We do it for the beauty of a thought or a moment,” they say. They respond to the very human desire to understand how things are made, capturing the very moment of creation, where material meets process and becomes product, in objects, furniture and film, and they animate and extend the moment by devising systems for making such things.
Crossing the line between art and design, Glithero’s work is sought after by collectors and interior designers and has been featured in museum exhibitions, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and The Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts in Lausanne, Switzerland.
