The CYENS Thinker Maker Space in collaboration with Lovenlight present an exhibition featuring furniture and objects designed and crafted by Lovenlight. From November 19 to 26 the Lovenlight duo will display their work and host a woodturning workshop.

Sahand and Navid Gholipour are the artists behind the Lovenlight creations. Born in Rasht, Iran, they have now been based in Limassol since 2010 when they founded their studio. Their designs merge the diversity of Eastern forms with Western modern design and seek innovation while respecting tradition both in functionality and form.

Their furniture pieces have been featured in publications and exhibited in various exhibitions in Cyprus, though is their first time being hosted at CYENS Thinker Maker Space, a hub for creativity. On the opening night, from 5.30pm to 8pm, a presentation will be held on the Lovenlight path which is full of ideas and challenges through the creative process. With learning through making as a core philosophy, the team will walk guests through the furniture and objects presented in the exhibition and how ultimately, they culminated in the signature piece that is the Lovenlight chess set.

The exhibition hopes to welcome creatives from various fields and anyone interested in purchasing furniture. For a more hands-on and in-depth look, an introductory workshop on woodturning will be held on November 24 and it is already fully booked! Until the next one is scheduled, it will be all about exploring the exhibited pieces and getting to know the Lovenlight creators.
