Studio Onno Adriaanse is a sculptural design studio focused on unique design/art objects and high-quality interior applications, inspired by landscapes and their geological processes. The studio operates at the intersection of the functional aspect and the emotional experience that a design can bring about. Onno’s design process is hands-on and material-oriented, resulting in statement pieces with a high level of craftsmanship. He graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2016. onnoadriaanse.nl
A technical and material driven approach to design together with hands-on way of working allows him to play and create in an experimental way. In many of the works the production process is used as a tool to design and a leading aspect to shape the final outcome and function of the object. Treating materials in an unconventional way to rethink the process of making, allows him to find surprising techniques which then can be translated into a functional yet interesting object. He graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018. timteven.com
Most products of Tijs Gilde derive from material researches that have rather impulsive and intuitive starting points. The researches show a unique fascination for structures, patterns and colour whilst exploring new possibilities of producing and making. After experimental phases the next challenge is to develop the techniques into large scale producible objects, usually for interior purposes. Having a background in trend forecasting and strategy, Tijs always aims to tap into certain needs or trends in existing and future markets. studioguilty.com
Paul Coenen employs an intuitive and hands-on approach, where he explores his fascination for materials and both modern and traditional manufacturing techniques. His work is straightforward; the appearance of the objects are a consequence of material and technique. He graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2019. paulcoenen.nl
