Dick van Hoffhttp://www.vanhoffontwerpen.nlAll-round designer. Born in 1971. Resides in the Netherlands.He graduated at the School of art in Arnhem, Netherlands in 1996. Since several years he is a teacher at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Van Hoff is an all-round designer how's strong material and form feeling is characteristic for his work. Besides that out of his products you can feel a deep love for the industrial and craftsmanship. Starting from a production process he stretches and bents the material or technique is such a way that there a new image starts to appear. This image gives an inside look in the structure of the design. Hereby a clear story starts to exist. Van Hoff spends an endless amount of time on making molds, machines how to bring him closer to the final goal. This part of the design process is even as important as the end result. This development of concepts leads in some cases to machines its self. Especially the designs presented for Droog design like tap stop, velt washbowl and porcelain lamps, gave the user an in-side view of the basis from these products. The stop tap for example, in one look you know how a mixer tap works. The open structure of the porcelain lamp shows what a lamp is, a bulpholder with a shade. During time Van Hoff changes his interest to how people use products. Crafts father the making process of the product you could say. especially the project "the tyranny of the plug". Human powered kitchen machines how let you think about use of the product and the amount of energy it needs. In the complete work of van Hoff we see a strong rejection of the unnecessary. Honesty to the production process, the shape and use are the first requirements.Van Hoff doesn't want to be pedantic, as a user you get involved in the making process and share with him the love for this.

Djim Bergerhttp://www.djimberger.comDesigner. Born in 1980. Resides in the Netherlands.In the field of materials a lot is figured out. Papers, fabrics, plastics, metals, wood, or stone. Porcelain is to my feeling a bit left behind. Maybe it is considered to be complex, to be precious. My goal is to let the spectrum of the material grow by making experiments, to take risks and make combinations in order to find new shapes, colours and techniques to give the material it's full value. To take porcelain where it has never been before.

Eric Klarenbeekhttp://www.ericklarenbeek.comDesigner of the unusual. Born in 1978. Resides in the Netherlands.Eric Klarenbeek generates processes. He doesn't develop products. What you will see is a moment in time, a work in progress. You can't speak of his last product, as it's still evolving. In terms of creative processes we aren't able to speak of present, future or past as we know time is relative. Our actions merge in time, space and matter. Ideas occur in a certain shape, are continuously growing in our brain, and return in a variety of shapes, colours and forms. A comparison would be a dream; in this, an object, person or environment can return or reshape in several dreams, independent of time and place.
