STUDIO LENNEKE WISPELWEY

STUDIO LENNEKE WISPELWEY

Lenneke Wispelwey founded her design studio in 2008 in Arnhem. She is mainly focused on working with porcelain. Her pastel coloured products with geometric patterns are the result of a very low-tech way of designing. Based on cut and pressed glass that mesmerised her as a child in her grandmother's kitchen cabinet. A basic, simple approach to techniques and materials are very important to communicate her vision and way of working. She prefers creating a family of products because as an only child she had always a desire for a bigger family. Her work is also known for the use of different shades of one color, and playing with the contrast between biscuit and glazed porcelain. Honest and harmonious designs, inspired by her own memories and found pieces from every day life. She feels her work should make people smile.
