Joost van Bleiswijk was born in Delft, 1976. He graduated from the Design Academy of Eindhoven in 2001. Today he works mainly on his own collections in which the ‘no glue no screw’ projects have lately become a major part. Besides his own collections, he works for such companies as Ahrend, Bruut furniture, City of Eindhoven, Design Connection, Lebesque, Secondome, Linteloo, and others. Craftsmanship and traditional techniques are important to Joost. He chooses to work not only with sustainable materials, but also with products that have an enduring and timeless image. According to Joost, the most important trend should be the absence of a trend, his goal is to create products that are timeless; people should buy things that will last a lifetime only because they have fallen in love with the design. His work has been sold and exhibited at national and international galleries including Moss Gallery in New York and Vivid Gallery in Rotterdam as well as at such museums as the Holon Design Museum in Israel and the Zuiderzeemuseum in The Netherlands. Joost van Bleiswijk has been reviewed in international publications as The New York Times, Wallpaper, Vogue, ELLE Deco, and the Financial Times.
