The Netherlands Ben Oostrum was born in 1960 and studied Sculpture at the (1960) Wilhelm Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. This background distinguishes Oostrum significantly from other designers.
He describes this difference like this: “My approach is different. Most of the designers always begin their work with a collection of duties and demands. As a contrast, I focus form and design as start-point.” For Oostrum design however, is not only the main part of his creations: In his designs, it is about creating a balance between design and function.
Oostrum leads the design studio Beno Oostrum Ontwerp in Rotterdam and could therewith win diverse design awards.
