Klaas Kuiken

We could call Klaas Kuiken a designer, but in his workspace he's more like an inventor or craftsman. These skills give him a different look on materials, techniques and production processes.

Maybe 'innovative designer' is the best way to describe both Klaas.

His innovative designs didn't stay unnoticed. Kuiken's work was featured at numerous exhibitions such as the Beijing Design Week, London Fashion Week, ICFF New York, Maison & Objet Paris and Skopje Design Week. Klaas has been nominated for the DOEN Materiaalprijs, Arnhemse Nieuwe and as one of the best student of 2010 according to FRAME.

All of Klaas Kuiken's products, except for the Birdhouse Rooftile, are available at design stores throughout the world.
