The design studio is formed by Iris van Daalen and Ruben Thier and is based in the Netherlands.
They share a fascination for light, reflection, geometric and organic shapes, together with the transience of nature. Over and over, they see it as a challenge to get hold of these phenomena and to abstract and translate them into new designs for lighting, furniture, accessories and unique objects.
Through extensive research and experiment with different materials such as wood, glass, plastics, industrial waste, hands-on new projects and designs arise. The combination with various techniques such as digital modelling and fabrication and traditional craftsmanships the studio discovers and makes use of the full potential wherein innovation and elegance come together.
Their fascination and urge to discover can be traced back into their motto; “Don’t take the world for granted.” By consciously deal with the sources, their surroundings and impact, they want to realize designs to cherish and which will last long.
Iris van Daalen ’85 and Ruben Thier ’87 both graduated at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2010 and start their studio in the summer of 2011 in Eindhoven.
