That magical feeling of building a sand castle, in the surf with the sun on your back. The euphoria felt after completing the structure is quickly alternated by the tension of the approaching waves of the rising tide, an important life lesson. Ruben van Megen built many sandcastles as a child on the Dutch North Sea coast. Ruben wants to relive and share the tension between euphoria and deception, through his new collection: ‘Sandcastles’.
He therefore developed stackable elements of sand, held together with a binder. A coffee table is built with these elements. The colors are inspired by the colorful sand shapes that are often used when building a sand castle. Co-creating the Sandcastles is an important part of the design concept. Elements and colors can be selected, which are put together by simply stacking them.
