Studio Eric Klarenbeek

Founder Eric Klarenbeek graduated in 2003 at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Since then his studio designs for clients such as Droog Design, Marcel Wanders's Moooi, Lidewij Edelkoort, Makkink Bey, Eneco and the Ministry of the Netherlands.

Studio Eric Klarenbeek does special projects, or let's say unusual projects, for unusual people or purposes. They search for new meaning and principles in technology, resources, objects and spaces, for unexplored connections between materials, production methods, makers and users. For this project he works in collaboration with designer Jolien van Delft.

Studio Eric Klarenbeek is known for their Mycelium Project, where new ways of 3D-printing living organisms are explored (such as mycelium, the threadlike network of fungi) as a binder for organic waste. This combination of local raw plant material and the organism as living glue creates products with a negative carbon footprint. You may have seen the Mycelium Chair at the 'Future of Design' expo during the Strawberry Earth Fair. Now it's time for more unusual things with these unusual designers at an unusual academy.
