Designer of the year at Dezeen Awards 2018 , Dezeen
Atelier NL develops products that showcase the richness of the earth and the value of local raw materials. Each earthly element tells a different story and yields a different product. Atelier NL’s work is based on a passionate and unique research methodology that analyzes the hidden narratives of the earth and all that it produces. Atelier NL speaks to the graceful subtleties of the natural world by reshaping raw earth elements into tangible, everyday objects.
On a deeper level, the work of Nadine Sterk and Lonny van Ryswyck calls for an expanded valuation of local sourcing and production. Their research-based projects aim to reveal and inspire while opening the eyes of the general public and industry specialists alike.
