Studio Nienke Hoogvliet · The Netherlands

Studio Nienke Hoogvliet is a design studio for material research, experimental and conceptual design. They use design as a tool to shape holistic perspectives.

Since the studio was founded in 2013 they have a main focus on materials that can contribute to a more holistic world. The projects raise awareness of social and environmental problems in the textile, leather and food industry. By creating innovative alternatives they hope to change perspectives and systems.

After years of research on natural seaweed dyes, Nienke also became the co-founder of Zeefier, a company focussing on producing natural seaweed dyes for the textile industry.

The work of Studio Nienke Hoogvliet has been exhibited worldwide in institutions like Artipelag, Stockholm | Centre Pompidou, Parijs | Centraal Museum, Utrecht | Cooper Hewitt Design Museum, New York | Textielmuseum, Tilburg | Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
