___ Lex Pott (1985) employs a raw and intuitive method. In his work, he returns to the origin of the materials he uses most: wood, stone and metal. He does not hide his designs under indirect layers, but reduces them to their very essence. Pott is an Amsterdam based designer and works from his studio in an old shipyard on the NDSM-Terrein, one of the last fringes in Amsterdam. He graduated cum laude in 2009 at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
___ Nature, and especially the principles and processes that are found in nature are David Derksen’s main sources of inspiration. This results in a strong focus on materials, how they behave and how they can be constructed. According to David Derksen, producing objects is like playing with the forces of nature. In his designs he tries to express the beauty of the material and the way it is produced.
He graduated in 2009 at the Design Academy Eindhoven and completed his MSc degree in 2011 at Industrial Design TU Delft. The studio is based in Rotterdam. Currently he is a guest teacher Product Design at Willem de Kooning Academy.
Lex Pott and David Derksen designed the Transience Mirror in a collaboration.
