Designer Spotlight: Ontwerpduo
Ontwerpduo is the first designer duo to be featured in the designer spotlight. Dutch Designers Tineke Beunder & Nathan Wierink design impossible things before breakfast. They translate fairy tale ideas into functional designs and surprise the world with them. Enjoy and get inspired by the beautiful world of Ontwerpduo!
The collaboration and chemistry between Beunder and Wierink, both graduated from the Design Academy in Eindhoven, made them an established name in Dutch Design. Tineke never lost her inner child. She likes to imagine things different from what they are and fantasizes about new functions for them. A talent I adore! Wierink, with his technical eye and ‘laboratory’ skills, turn those ideas in reality.
What I like most about Ontwerpduo is their will to make the impossible feasible! That’s what makes them a great designer duo! The photography settings, in which they present their work, make me love them even more – intriguing and inspiring.
Step into the world of Ontwerpduo!
Whether you put Light Forest on the wall or on the ceiling, it grows where other lights don’t go.
Swinging in Cageling make you feel as free as a bird. Daydream away in your own space, whether you hang Cageling indoors or outdoors
Sing a lullaby while carefully swinging your baby to sleep. The Rockid is a combination of a rocking chair and cradle. Sophisticated and functional!
A lovely interpretation of the good old candleholder. One of my personal favorite designs by Ontwerpduo.
Once Upon A Time
Step into a fairy tale with Once Upon A Time. Ontwerpduo were asked to design a room in an extraordinary house. For this project in a 16th century mansion with a long history, Ontwerpduo felt like stepping into a fairy tale. They designed 10 pieces all based on different fairy tales. This one is my favourite with Tallow.
Mirror mirror one the… wall, floor and in your hand!
See yourself three times, each time from a different angle.
I hope you got inspired as much as I am.
Enjoy your day!
