I am a Dutch designer working on products, materials, surfaces and spatial design. Playfulness, experimentation and a delicate application of both colours and materials characterize my design language. My hands-on working method vouches for groundbreaking projects – materialized ideas twisting techniques into new crafts. The projects I especially enjoy working on tend to push boundaries. This can be craft oriented like the Basketclub that I initiated at the start of the pandemic, sometimes its more scenographic like the exhibition design for Textilemuseum and Crafts Council and sometimes more focussed on material explorations as part of Envisions.
One of the outcomes of my 3D weaving research, a woven interpretation of a classic baseball cap is about to take a leap into reality.
