Ruben Hoogvliet is a Dutch Designer driven by an experimental and curios Nature. Working in a diverse range of disciplines, 'the realm of design-art'. His work shows an enthusiasm for experimentation in material processing.  How a lump of clay becomes a roof tile and a pile of sand becomes a drinking glass. Within these processes he always wants to find the border of what is possible.  His work uncovers new ideas about contemporary crafts and production methods. With a playful attitude Ruben wants to tell us where things are made of. He refers to the objects he makes as `long events`. Fascinated by the way an event transforms into an object.  The act of making, is one that must be done with care, attention and consensus towards its context. a process in which he shows that we should certainly not forget to pay attention to the beauty of the way things come about.



As alumni of product design and with an extended practice in the creative process, I am happy to guide creative process within organizations and companies.  If you are interested in my work or want to know more about anything, do not hesitate to contact me.
