Bertjan Pot  Rugs Turned to Masks

May 26 | 1975 | Nieuwleusen | The Netherlands

Bertjan designs products, often Interior products. The way interior products relate to their users appeals to Bertjan. Interior products are not distant and hardcore industrial like power tools, cars and buildings. And they are not just personal hip fashion. Furniture and lighting design really fits the method of Bertjan’s work. Starting small, playing with and focusing on a material or a technique. Bertjan searches for a system, the DNA, which will use as building stones for something bigger. Optimal use of a material and technique make a valuable product, each ingredient humbly present complementing the others. Bertjan makes products which are more than the function they have to fulfill. Bertjan’s method is both technical and intuitive. Intuition is hard to explain. For every decision we make there are several reasons. Some mentioned, but the best are silently accepted. Her technical interest and creative fantasies are a way to push the boundaries of Industrial production. Intelligence mixed with a little ignorance might realize our dreams.
