I graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2011. In the same year, I started my own design studio. I design and make my own products and create commissioned products for a variety of clients.
My designs are characterized by simple solutions that show the world around us from a different perspective. I enjoy incorporating the room, in particular the ceiling, into my designs because 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 think it’s important to bring a tactile quality into my designs so I pay a lot of attention to detail in my products and as a result, they invite you to touch them.
