Material & Textile design


Portrait Lio de Bruin, Photography Florine van Rees.JPG


I am a material designer with a focus on textiles, inspired by traditional methods of craftsmanship. 

With an intuitive approach I play with different techniques, colors and materials. I try to push boundaries and explore the possibilities of techniques.
The products which I design are rich in texture and pattern. 

I get enthusiastic by creating materials which enrich our surroundings. With my vision on material research and concept design I aim to inspire others around me.

I collaborate with design brands and work in commission.
