we bring you light!

Let us introduce ourselves: we are belgian eva and dutch carolina, two designers who met by coincidence (it probably wasn't....!) in a lovely old town near the sea in the south-west of holland. we both sort of stranded there after living and working all over the planet; visiting remote places, meeting many inspiring people, practising yoga, and trying to earn a living: sometimes successfully and struggling at other times.
we both went to art school, eva specialised in installations and film, and carolina graduated as an art- jewellery designer/silversmith, but we both reached that stage where we much needed a break from our labourious solo-projects... so we sat down and started writing, about who we are as people and designers, what we value in our lives, what we'd really love to create as a team while combining our strengths to the fullest... and it didn't take long to discover we'd both been making lighting objects at some stage in our designer-life et voila! our capitulum vii project was born.
you know, light is just the most wonderful thing... it is magic! as a famous director of photography once said: 'as long as there's light, you're never alone...' we love to bring light into our finds from attics, fleamarkets and little antique shops. there are so many beautiful old and discarded materials just waiting for a little tlc and a new purpose as an addition to the capitulum vii collection. nothing's better than to add a spark of life to the irreplaceable qualities of a used and pre-loved object!
and all this time, starting from day one, way before opening our capitulum vii shop here on etsy, it has been nothing but fun!! it provides us with the best excuse to drag the most strange and wonderful objects to our homes and drink endless cups of earl grey tea with milk on our business meetings... and now that we can share our capitulum vii collection with you, it's even better! we are both pretty proud of our brand new etsy shop.... life is good!
