About Visser & Meijwaard

Visser & Meijwaard is a design studio by Steven Visser (1985) and Vera Meijwaard (1988) founded in 2013 in Arnhem, The Netherlands. The designer duo creates distinct but minimalistic products of which versatile materials and clear shapes constitute the essence. In their designs they are guided by distinctive details and the way in which the product is constructed. From the archetypical gym buck to the super functional camping closet, Visser and Meijwaard use their characteristic features and find new ways to apply them.

Visser and Meijwaard met in 2008 at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem. During their studies they specialized in Product Design. After they graduated in July 2012, he with a collection of gentleman’s accessories, she with a collection of very feminine high heels, the idea arose to start a label together.

Stool with Footbal, Ghana, Asante people.


Today is the first day of the World Cup soccer tournament! During the British colonization of Africa in the early 19th century, the sport of soccer was introduced to the continent. As the game increased in popularity, traditional African symbols depicted on chiefs’ stools gave way to symbols projecting Western influence and power. This intriguing stool depicts the feet of two opposing athletes, each poised to kick a ball. It is carved from a single piece of hardwood, with the exception of the ball, which actually spins. Currently on view in Gallery 40.

Stool, Ca. 1920–1930. Ghana, Asante people. Wood. Museum purchase, Volunteer Council Acquisition Fund. 1999.12
