Studio Molen is well known for its monumental bronze lighting sculptures, which, inspired by city lights and the night sky, visualize a vision of a future city. These sculptures, and many other projects of Studio Molen, have been acquired by art collectors worldwide and shown at international art fairs and exhibitions.
