Hendrik van der Schoor

I like to carry my idea's with me for a long time before I use them. Like survival of the fittest, the best ideas grow bigger and mature.

So I let the idea evolve organicly without pushing it in any direction

Of course, I am biased and as the designing process progresses I have to be more concise, but I try to stay receptive for other possibilities and sometimes even go back a step or two.

In this process of diverging and converging I sort of let the product design itself in a natural way, creating a whole and characteristic product that doesn't have my big stamp all over it.



After receiving my Bachelers at the Artez Artacademy in Enschede I have worked in commission making furniture and lighting, with all kinds of jobs in the manufacturing industry on the side, ranging from wooden kids furniture to bio-based composit products.

But I wasn't satisfied with my designs because the deadlines and budgets were restricting me too much to my taste.

Although the customers were usually very happy I felt like I needed more time than the deadline allowed to fully developed to their capabilities as a result.

So I decided to start designing for myself and take my time for it in order to let my ideas come to full maturity.
