American designer Eric Janssen (b. 1964) has been designing products and furniture from his studio in New York City since 1997. His work exhibits a keen interest in materials and production processes, as well as a simple, archetypal approach to form.
The materials themselves sometimes play a communicative role in his designs and a subtle wit is often present. His sculptural and iconic designs are a contemporary interpretation of classic modern design.
Janssen has designed products for The Museum of Modern Art, Areaware, Merlo-T and Kikkerland, among others. His designs have appeared in numerous exhibitions, trade fairs and publications worldwide.
