DESIGNER | Ontwerpduo
Since 2008, Ontwerpduo has been a fixture on the design scene. Created by Dutch duo Tineke Beunders and Nathan Wierink, the brand creates functional, playful homewares. From lamps that subdivide like trees to pieces that play with transparency and contrast to create optical illusions: each one is a work of ingenuity, and a product of the chemistry between the two founders.
Ever since their student days at Design Academy, these two creatives had the dream of taking fairy-tale ideas and translating them into functional designs. Today, they are joined by a close-knit team of devisers and doers who help turn their dreams into reality. Part of their production is done from their premises in Eindhoven, and what is not created on site is made either in the Netherlands or in greater Europe.
