Van Eijk & van der Lubbe
Having focused on applied product design, non-commissioned work and total designs for projects, interiors and buildings until now, the designer duo Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe is now bringing their ideas into people’s homes with the introduction of their Usuals label. The designers challenge you to look at the world around you in a different way. This will also be the underlying notion behind every new product to be designed.
“Our designs raise questions; we work with forms and products we all know, we add benefits to them to make it nowadays products without loosing their own characteristics. They make you change your perspective to things, and challenge you to look at another way to the world around you.”
