about the designer
Born in a small town in Brabant, The Netherlands, Tijs Gilde’s love for making pushed him to do his studies at the Design Academy in Eindhoven during which he also enjoyed an internship in the design/strategy department of IKEA. After he graduated in 2015, he founded his studio in Eindhoven in the creative area of Sectie-C where he could combine the forecasting of trends with his well-developed skill in product design. Working intuitively, he searches for new approaches to colour, shape and function while developing current trend visions and translating them into interior objects. His work is characterised by a fluidity in design style in which he lets contemporary elements be his guide, in order to let new visions manifest to it’s full potential.
