About

Hedwich Hooghiemstra, born 02-08-1995 in Groningen, is a designer working mostly with analogue techniques. Important in her process is the relation of the human body to the product. She studied at the Royal Academy in Kopenhagen in 2016 and graduated in January 2018, from the Design Academy Eindhoven, with her project ‘the Adaptable Seating Collection’. 

Her focus is on products as well as on architecture and she is part of the design collective Future More. Hedwich’s work is meant to create interaction between people. Wether that is in open space or the private sphere, her designs inspires people to look beyond the object.
