For the WGSN Homebuildlife trend analysis Aniela was asked to give her thoughts on “Playful Lighting” in June 2011.
Designer Aniela Hoitink from Neffa created the Sleeping Beauty pendant in order to draw attention to the original pancake tutu, and in particular the way in which it is manufactured. Aniela told WGSN: “In times of crisis we tend to look back and as a human being we make the past seem much nicer than it
actually was. So when it is getting harder in life (struggle or crisis) we hold on to what we know, which is the past. And for a lot this involves childhood memories. We want to experience the carelessness we then had.”
