Black Sketch Chair by Kiki and Joost
Kiki van Eijk lives in a peaceful farmhouse in Eindhoven and works in a warehouse where she makes fantastical things. She looks at the delicate small details of nature with joy and delight and uses colors with uncommon intuition. Her beliefs? Imagination is more important than knowledge! She is never in a hurry.
Joost van Bleiswijk is a prolific Dutch designer who gives great value to the process of making. He grew up in Delft, and studied at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, where he met his future partner, Kiki van Eijk.
Joost welds, saws, screws and constructs. He casts and moulds. In short: he makes. The workshop as his kingdom where design unfolds. What truly defines him? Interest in the construction of the objects and a quite physical approach. And with only one rule: never follow trends!
