about the designer

As a designer, Aukje Fleur Janssen focuses on the material appearance of the world around her, exploring the boundaries of a material and then manipulating it as she sees fit. ‘When different ingredients come together or two materials meet, their colours overlay and express a shape.’ The process phase of designing is her playground, creating palettes of opportunities within the field of intermediate products. With an outspoken use of materials and a colourful signature, her works have a strong sensory attraction. While starting with handmade samples, Janssen’s goal is to work on an industrial scale and contribute an unexpected use of materials with a colourful impact.
