A design house of bespoke solutions, projects, and experimentation, daast is the combined design thinking of Andrew Southwood-Jones and Alexander Kashin. Winners of the SOYA Qantas program, the designers met while studying architecture at UTS. Recognising a shared fascination for putting unusual materials to innovative use, they soon started working on design outcomes together. One of their creative works is Spyder Light.
“Answering our studio need for a flexible lights source that could be moved easily and quickly, daast leveraged the abundance of metal shelving with a bespoke solution. Adapting a rubberized sheath used by electricians to join cables, both metal and electrical elements are joined to create flexible legs and house magnets.”
