Hugo de Ruiter
Designer, Product Designer
I consider upholstered furniture to be like a third skin. Just like a good piece of clothing, your furniture should be comfortable and suit you in many ways. My designs are dynamic in both shape and use. Components that are easy to move or shift ensure that the piece of furniture is perfectly adjustable to its user and thus able to keep up with daily life. This can range from a private moment or an intimate gathering to active comfort during the day or a lazy evening on the couch. A compact table ingeniously doubles in size to offer a warm welcome to friends at night.
In my work I call this (E)motion.
I am constantly searching for meaningful developments in my concepts and in this search I frequently find non-conformist solutions which contain distinctive functional features and a surprising design. Some great examples are the DS 164 for de Sede and Archipel for Leolux.
I am inspired by nature, art, architecture and technology, but mostly, I am inspired by life itself.
At the age of 14, I had decided that I wanted to be a chef or a designer. My first sauces were sometimes lumpy, just like my first table, which was a bit rickety.
It was the combination of passion and ambition which drove me forwards.
These days, I cook some tasty meals for my friends and family and I have been a designer for international top brands for several years now. A salmon swims thousands of kilometres across the ocean to breed. It takes a tree hundreds of years to become full-grown.
It is my mission to create a good and healthy meal, with respect for these amazing ingredients which mother earth has given us. It is my mission to create a beautiful and durable table or chair. I and my clients subscribe to sustainable production methods.
Every single one of my designs is produced by craftsmen with an eye for quality.
Nothing lasts forever, but my designs attempt to be a friend for life.
I advise companies with innovative design, strategic and technical product development.
