New gentleman from Utrecht
Nieuwe Heren, freely translated as "New Gentleman", was founded in 2009 by Erik De Nijs and Tim Smit. Erik and Tim both completed their studies at the University of the Arts in Utrecht in 2009. After some successful collaborations during their studies, they decided to found their own design studio and unite their similar visions and ideas for a fruitful collaboration.
As Nieuwe Heren, they design products that are more than just beautiful. They believe that there are already enough meaningless products, which is why they strive for timeless designs with a focus on longevity. For this reason, they mainly work with materials such as steel, concrete and wood, which are also sustainable.
Her work ranges from small design objects to furnishings for trendy bars to the furnishing of a complete children's hospital. You like to work on a small object as well as on an entire office building.
"In our designs we are actually quite selfish, we create what we like. We just hope the rest of the world likes it too."
