Hedwich Hooghiemstra (1995) studied at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen in 2016 and graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2018, with the furniture collection “Adaptable Seating”.

She starts her design process in making an image with a distinctive atmosphere. Further on in the process, the functions will be integrated in the design. Thus creating multiple layers that bring a different use and experience to the space or product.

Her focus is on products as well as on architecture. Wether that is in public space or the private sphere, the designs inspire to look beyond the object.
