Tim Simpson, born in the UK in 1982, and Sarah van Gameren, born in The Netherlands in 1981, formed Glithero in 2008 after completing the Design Products course at the Royal College of Art. From their studio in London, they create objects, furniture, and time-based installations that encapsulate and express the ephemeral beauty found in the moment of creation.
From machines that miraculously create wax chandeliers and a pouring slide that becomes a 10-meter-long poly-concrete table, to ceramics that turn vivid blue with UV light, the key ingredients of their work are time and transformation. With their own concoction of creation-performance they aim to bridge creative disciplines and make works that can be understood by all.
