About

Klaas Kuiken
In 2010 Klaas Kuiken graduated from ArtEZ School of Arts in Arnhem (NL).

In his workproces Klaas is more an inventor and craftsman than a designer, this gives him a different, new look on material, technique and productionproces.

It brings him endless possibility, this, in combination with his designing qualities, makes him a innovative designer, which shows in his products.

 

On a frequent base Klaas is working in collaboration with initiators,
fellow-designers and factories which use interesting productionmethods.


When you are interested in the workproces or products of Klaas, you’re welcome to come and take a look in his workshop.
