Françoise Oostwegel

Françoise Oostwegel is a young Dutch designer inspired inspired by retro design and artefacts. She applies out-of-the-ordinary materials and colours and reinvigorates them.


“I’m Françoise Oostwegel born in the Netherlands and live in Maastricht thats in the south of the Netherlands. I graduated in July 2014 at the Academie of Fine arts and Design in Maastricht MAFAD. I graduated with lamp ZUID. These lamps are the start of my career as a designer. I hope in the future i’m gonna design more products of my one. In November 2014 I started my own Design studio Çedille by Françoise Oostwegel.”


My creations are inspired by retro design and artefacts.
By applying out-of-the-ordinary materials and colours, I reinvigorate them. 
I recycle old materials and products by giving them a second life. 

Chandelier ‘Zuid’ is an ode to ‘Limburg’ in the South of the Netherlands. Inspired by the old buildings in this region and their history with coal mining. This original, top quality, dutch design comes in 3 sizes.
