In constant research in her Brussels studio, Isabelle van Oost creates lighting from recycled plastics. Born in 1960 in Rio de Janeiro, she studied scenography at ENSAV-La Cambre. Designer, painter, scenographer and visual designer, she shares her professional career between Belgium and Brazil. For more than 35 years, she has been designing her lamps from various materials such as fiberglass, glass and metal. Today, she designs her lights from the recovery of our everyday plastic objects (cake molds, colanders, funnels, …).

Through her creations, she invites us to take a fresh look at this material and these objects. She plays with shadows, lights and transparency to create lamps, a kind of suspended architecture: towers, pagodas or floating cities. Her new collection O.V.N.I.S, inspired by ovoid forms, is presented for the first time at the Design Museum Brussels.
