Atelier GertJan

Gert-Jan Soepenberg is a Dutch product designer and interior architect working from Groningen (NL).

My designs are statements for quality products. They possess a crafted and industrial honesty.

I believe that it's impossible to create a cherished product, without giving the initial design the personal attention it deserves in the first place. All products are designed with an eye for detail and quality, and made from plain, natural or recycled materials. Every product is handmade by skilled craftsmen.

The workshop is my drawing board: only by welding, carving, comparing textiles and smelling the odour of leather, the perfect product comes to life. My products come into being in the workshop, because for me the design process never goes without the production process.
