Industrial Design from the A to the Z >>> Hh

Richard Hutten

(1967 Zwollerkerspel)
graduated at the Academy Industrial Design Eindhoven in 1991. That same year he started his own designstudio, working on a variety of projects such as: furniture-, product-, interior- and exhibition design. He developed his 'No sign of design' and 'Table upon table' concepts. He is one of the most internationally successful Dutch designers; a key exponent of "Droog Design", in which he has been involved since it's inception in 1993.

His work is part of the permanent collections of, among others, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art Amsterdam, Vitra Museum Weil am Rhein, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Philippe Starck used some of Huttens designs for the interiors of the Delano Hotel Miami and the Mondrian Hotel Los Angeles.

His work has been published in all the leading international design magazines, among which: Items (NL), Design Report (D) Designo Interior (S), Blue Print (GB), Interni (I), Abitare (I), Design News (J), Wind (J), Axis (J), Vieuw on Colors (NL/F), Vieuw on interior (NL/F), Architectur und wohnen (D), Wallpaper (GB) Intramuros (F) and several issues of the international Design Yearbook (GB).

Hutten is this kind of designer that seems to love to play with the forms and the common perception that people have of the objects. His work is atractive and funny, but this doesn't mean that has a extremelly quality and beauty.
