Alternate Text
Dutch Designer Jongerius has become known for the special way she fuses industry and craft, high and low tech, tradition and the contemporary. In her search for the balance between mass-produced objects and traditionally crafted one-offs, Jongerius breathes new life into forgotten designs and techniques.

Graduating Eindhoven Design Academy in 1993 she started her own design company, Jongeriuslab, through which she produces her own work and projects for clients such as Maharam (New York), KLM (The Netherlands), Vitra (Basel), IKEA (Sweden) and Royal Tichelaar Makkum (The Netherlands). Her work has been shown at museums and galleries worldwide.
