Aptum is a lighting company that works with clients, interior designers and architects, art directors and experts from other fields. The label offers a complete service in the design, manufacture and installation of custom-made lighting in unlimited configurations for the residential, hospitality and commercial sector. The light installations can vary in terms of expression from colorful and chaotic to sober and geometric and stir a sense of wonder, excitement and magic.


Aptum provides three different types of services:

Custom collection. Aptum presents a portfolio of lighting systems that are highly adaptable. Every installation is different in appearance, size, color and more. Being an interior designer or architect you are able to design yourself within the boundaries of our systems, and let us know what you want. You can also have Aptum make a proposal for the space. 

Aptum also supplies a basic collection based on the custom collection. Smaller, powerful models that offer you craftsmanship with shorter delivery times.

Rather éverything unique? Aptum offers a bespoke design service based on the assignment and customer’s wishes. This can be extravagant permanent light installations in public places or temporary light experiences for events.


Aptum is lighting for spaces, just like a tailored suit is for your body. You choose the colors, the sizes, complexity and the materials. Specially made for you, it always fits well.

And in case you’re wondering: Aptum means adaptable.


That’s right! The lighting systems are well-known designs from the portfolio of Tineke Beunders and Nathan Wierink, who together translate fairy-tale ideas into functional products since 2008 under the name ONTWERPDUO – an established name in Dutch Design. With Ontwerpduo they developed a great passion for lighting, and many years of experience with production and installation all over the world. The fervent wish of the duo to be able to make more specialized work, in combination with the increasing demand from the interior and architecture sector, comes true with the launch of APTUM, October 2019. The brand takes over the two light systems Light Forest and Contour from Ontwerpduo’s portfolio.


Whether your question is technical, poetic or functional: we are ready for you. We like to be challenged by seemingly impossible wishes. We love to play with light and material to make spaces magical. We sketch and draw, research, make small models, do prototyping and production.
We’ll surprise you.


Our team comes exclusively from a design background, and includes members who each are specialized in their own direction. We work together with technicians, engineers and programmers from the region. Our core team consists of:

Tineke Beunders, the creative spindle of the brand, is a conceptual thinker, story teller, visualizer. She makes the first concepts, designs and drawings. She likes to have a good talk and a coffee with clients in order to find out exactly what your wishes are. So you don’t have to worry.

Nathan Wierink is the whizzkid of the team and designing smart production techniques and all details in the lights. He is a maker, and happiest when it is just a bit too busy. He is also the guy that fixes every damn thing on location. So you don’t have to worry.

Elke van den Hoogen is the project manager, without her everything would be one big mess. She creates an overview in chaos, does research, works out the concepts and graphics. She is excellent with planning your project. So we don’t have to worry.


Aptum is based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. In the centre, in a very old and monumental building, the first power station of the city. We translated the building into our lighting factory and showroom. Eindhoven is known as the city of light and considered to be the smartest region of the world. The city is the home of companies such as ASML, Philips, VDL and the High Tech Campus. In addition to this, the biggest Design Event of north Europe ‘Dutch Design Week’ takes place in Eindhoven every year in October. All in all, Eindhoven is a wonderful place to work from – and worth a visit.
