About us:

Studio Lotte Douwes is a small product design studio, focussed on mainly interior products. Our projects are self initiated but we work on commissioned projects as well. The designs we make are practical objects and solution oriented. We have a great love for materials and especially for porcelain. An extensive research into colour and tactility results in products that are inviting to touch. A recurring aspect is delicacy in material, texture of color. The collection contains a wide range of products which are being produced in the studio or external by other experts and design labels. The studio is focussed on research based projects where we take time to develop (new) materials. We want to design for the future, that means we respect the environment and we question the steps we take. We develop new sustainable materials and production techniques to design high end products for the interior.
