Biography

Designer Hella Jongerius (1963) has become known for the special way she fuses industry and craft, high and low tech, tradition and the contemporary. After graduating from the Eindhoven Design Academy in 1993, she started her own design company, Jongeriuslab, through which she produces her own projects and projects for clients such as Maharam (New York), KLM (The Netherlands), Danskina (The Netherlands), Vitra (Basel) and Royal Tichelaar Makkum (The Netherlands). Hella Jongerius’s research on colours, materials, and textures is never complete. All her questions are open-ended, and all her answers provisional, taking the form of finished and semi-finished products...

Designer Hella Jongerius (1963) has become known for the special way she fuses industry and craft, high and low tech, tradition and the contemporary. After graduating from the Eindhoven Design Academy in 1993, she started her own design company, Jongeriuslab, through which she produces her own projects and projects for clients such as Maharam (New York), KLM (The Netherlands), Danskina (The Netherlands), Vitra (Basel) and Royal Tichelaar Makkum (The Netherlands). Hella Jongerius’s research on colours, materials, and textures is never complete. All her questions are open-ended, and all her answers provisional, taking the form of finished and semi-finished products. These are part of a never-ending process, and the same is essentially true of all Jongeriuslab designs: they possess the power of the final stage, while also communicating that they are part of something greater, with both a past and an uncertain future. The unfinished, the provisional, the possible – they reveal traces of the creation process, and the potential of materials and techniques within the attention for imperfections. Through this working method, Jongerius not only celebrates the value of the process, but also engages the viewer, the user, in her investigation.

Her work has been shown at museums and galleries such as the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum (New York), MoMA (New York), the Design Museum and The Victoria & Albert Museum (London), also Moss Gallery (New York) and Galerie kreo (Paris) for who she designs several pieces such as the « Gemstone Tables » in 2013.

In 2017, Hella Jongerius received the Sikkens Prize.
