Handmade Industrials is an experimental design studio, founded by Rutger de Regt and Marlies van Putten.
Handmade Industrials contradict industrial standards by removing the aim of vast quantities. The studio, founded by Dutch designers Rutger de Regt (1979) and Marlies van Putten (1990), is based in The Hague and creates conceptual furniture. By using existing industrial techniques and materials in a different context, their objects reflect the contrast between industry and craft.
Passion for materials and an inventive character is the base of all their designs. instead of a first sketch, new projects begin by discoveries made during experiments. This results in an organic design process which is not forced but reflects the character of the material. Our aim is to create objects that have an own identity, while setting up a serial production process, each piece is unique. By reclaiming industrial possibilities we create the opportunity to notice the value of materials used in our everyday life.
