Hella Jongerius, Nice lady, Nice talent.

And yes indeed another designer that graduated from the prestigious Eindhoven Academy! She makes her first steps at Amsterdam’s Studio Droog, quickly seduced by the creation of a bath rug and a subtle vase made out of a new material : polyurethane, Droog thereby launches her collection world wide, thanks to Droog for propelling me to the summits of the 90’s/2000 trends!

She then decides to launch her own studio: Jongeriuslab, the fusion between artisanal and industrial design. Artisanal is a recurrent theme in her work, she integrates it in an industrial process of “high and low” technology, step by step her work becomes less sober, she focuses more on materials, decoration, colours, she constantly oscillates between modernity and tradition. She was quickly spotted by big clients such as Maharam, Royal Tichelaar Makkum, IKEA and KLM. The Dutch creator conceived unique creations such as the Polder Sofa and the Woker Chair for Vitra. Her pieces have been displayed at institutions such as the Design Museum (London), the Kreo Gallery (Paris) and the Moss Gallery (New York). www.jongeriuslab.comUnknown
