Bench No.3


Floris Wubben, Netherlands

Working in his studio in the Netherlands this young designer's work is making an impact across Europe and the U.S.. Inspired by the materials and forms found in nature Floris combines these with contemporary components such as plastics and  steel to create surprising pieces.  The clean lines and purity of Floris’ design is also apparent in his dedication to simplicity, using the minimal amount of interventions and materials to create his designs.  Floris seeks to give new form to traditional materials and thus a new purpose to his designs. A designer whose work is decidedly perched on the edge between functional and visionary.
