VOUW is an Amsterdam-based design studio working at the crossroads of art, technology, and social cohesion, creating light installations
. Founded in 2017 based on the belief that technology is not solely a means of efficiency and productivity, VOUW is a pioneer in slowtech: design that slows people down to bring them together in the real world. Like a factory reset for the soul, the work of founders Mingus Vogel and Justus Bruns illuminates the human condition and opens the heart to the possibility of organic connection with other people and the planet. The studio's creations have been exhibited worldwide. Their work, Chairwave, was recognized by the 2020 Dezeen Awards for seating design. VOUW debuted their newest work, Bloomlight, at the 2021 Taiwan Lantern Festival in Hsinchu.
