Kiki van Eijk & Joost van Bleiswijk

He grew up in Delft and studied at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, where he met his future partner, Kiki van Eijk and founded the studio in 2001 to become one of the most accomplished names in Dutch design. A real fascination for the construction of the object – often revealed in the result – is the starting point of his approach. The studio is where Joost engages in the experience of designing as an intensely physical act.
His international collaborations include brands like Moooi, Bernhardt Design, Nodus and OmniDecor amongst a range of private collectors, companies and institutions such as the Rijksmuseum, Central Museum Utrecht, Design Academy Eindhoven, Zuiderzee Museum, Noord Brabants Museum and the North Sea Jazz festival. .

Why we love glass
It is amazing that glass, along with wood and stone, the oldest material in the world, is also the most modern and contemporary. Unlike any other material, glass only needs itself to be used in architecture. As if that were not enough, glass is eternal and eternally recyclable, the perfect example of sustainability and circular economy.
We love glass and have been working with it for four generations. Despite this, it continues to amaze us: its compositional potential seems endless.
