studio Thier & van Daalen
Iris van Daalen & Ruben Thier share their 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 sustainable designs.
New designs for lighting, furniture, jewellery, home accessories and unique objects. In addition, they design sustainable and bespoke interiors for companies and private homes, into spaces where you feel at ease.
They combine their sense of aesthetics, intuition and material knowledge with various techniques such as digital modelling and fabrication or traditional craftsmanships to make use of the full potential wherein innovation and elegance come together. In the course of the years, they gained extensive material knowledge, through research and experiment with materials such as wood, glass, plastics, waste materials and more.
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 realise sustainable designs to cherish and which will last long.
Iris van Daalen and Ruben Thier both graduated at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2010 and start their studio in the summer of 2011 in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
