bERT & dENNIS DESIGN STUDIO
When Bert met Dennis...
" We just began talking one day about designs...brainstorming. We've never looked back..."
bERT&dENNIS design studio is the brainchild of Bert van der Grift and Dennis van der Burch. Driven by a lifelong passion for furniture and textiles, they work together as a team towards a single shared aesthetic.
The values underpinning their work shine through: simplicity, fluidity, angularity, utility; organic forms vie with subtle references to Bauhaus, kitsch, traditional Japanese (and cheese?!) to create a look that is startlingly original and yet revealing a unity bound by classical principles.
Working in a diversity of materials from hardwoods to plastics, the emphasis is always on understatement: clean lines of function and a stark absence of adornment, spiked with an ever-present element of surprise (and an irrepressible sense of humour!).
The boys won't beat you about the head with platitudes persuading you to agree with their view of the world. Instead they'll point you to their portfolio. Good design, they believe, stands up by itself. You be the judge. Enough said. Enjoy...
