Glithero’s practice began with a manifesto that proffered process as equal to product. However, rather than simply describing craftsmanship, they desired to demonstrate transformation.

As a result their work spans many mediums to capture beauty in its making – from film and documentation to installation and performance and all manner of products in between.

Often their finished pieces are products of illusion and manifest on the cusp of their existence, only to disappear from sight with the slightest change in perspective. This temporal quality provides a fleeting and playful experience to the viewer.

Glithero studio was set up in 2008 by British designer Tim Simpson and Dutch designer Sarah van Gameren, who met and studied product design together at the Royal College of Art.
