Designers Ruben Thier and Iris van Daalen founded their design studio back in 2011. Known for their experimental approach and fascination for the transience of nature, they create contemporary designs for interior. We visited Studio Thier&vanDaalen in Eindhoven and talked about their design proces and ‘Interior Reflections’ series.
Hi Ruben & Iris. How are you?
Good! We just moved our studio and home into one. There is still a lot to be done, but it is very convenient to be able to combine work and home in the same space.
How did you start Studio Thier&vanDaalen?
We both studied at Design Academy in Eindhoven and fell in love. During our graduation, we discovered that we had a lot of ideas and that working together felt natural.
What was the first project you worked on together?
Our first project as Studio Thier&vanDaalen was called ‘CuratorCabinet’. We became fascinated with bubbles and how they flow in the air. We translated this fascination into frame cabinets that showcase products inside a glass bubble.
