About me

I graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2011 and began my own design studio in the same year. I design and produce my own products and create commissioned items for a variety of clients.

My designs are characterized by simple solutions that approach the world around us from a different perspective. I enjoy incorporating the room, in particular the ceiling, into my designs as it emphasizes a feeling of spaciousness. Actually using the products creates a literal connection with the space, bringing a dynamic element into mainly static interiors.

My designs are practical objects and solution oriented. I find it important to bring a tactile quality into my designs and I have a great eye for detail, which results in products that invite you to touch them.

Studio Lotte Douwes is:

Passionate, open minded, solution oriented, curious and inventive. Lotte sets clear goals, has an eye for detail and never loses sight of the big picture.
