Hella Jongerius

Hella Jongerius (* 1963 in de Meern/Netherlands) studied design at the Industrial Design Academy in Eindhoven. She subsequently attracted international attention through her work for the Dutch design label Droog Design. She taught at the Design Academy in Eindhoven from 1998-99, serving as head of the department Living/Atelier from 2000-04. In 2000 she founded the design studio JongeriusLab in Rotterdam, where she creates, produced and markets many of her designs - primarily dishware, vases, textiles and furnishings. Hella Jongerius' work often blurs the borders between design and handicrafts, or art and technology. In 2002 Hella Jongerius created the range Repeat for the taxied producer Maharam, which in 2005 was admitted to the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Hella Jongerius, together with Eames Office and Vitra, reworked the classic Eames Lounge Chair to create Lounge Chair White. Along with Jasper Morrison and Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Hella Jongerius has made major contributions to the steadily growing Vitra Home Collection.
