Craftsmanship, artisanry and an eye for detail are the three main requirements for designing a good piece of furniture. There by, of course, is the ability to produce it. From his experience in the interior design industry, Joeri Koolhoven designed his first furniture collection in 2009.
Joeri Koolhoven, “That first piece of furniture was a table, that I named John. The design of it had gradually grown in my head, but the realization was the result of the playful experiments with wood I had been doing for years. I endlessly explored how I could best put two pieces of wood together and then tried to do it. I also design furniture on the drawing table. But usually I design my furniture in the workshop, without a design on paper. I am a very practical guy.”
Dining table Hendrik, bookcase Charlie, coffee table Frank, garden table John Outdoor, dining table Jackie; the Joeri Koolhoven collection is expanding steadily. Each piece has a strong personality. Joeri’s designs are pure and honest, made of durable materials, with an elegant and timeless look. The details are often inspired by architectural landmarks. If anything, Koolhoven’s furniture is a symbiosis of craftsmanship, artisanry and an eye for detail.
