Vincent De Rijk

Check out Easy Dutch

Humankind is happier when it discovers a new dish than when it discovers a new star. Vincent De Rijk makes that experience nicer still. His bowls and dishes are cast in original and very colorful shapes and he mixes ceramics and plastics to create a unique look and - not the least - feel.

After graduating from the Design Academy in Eindhoven, De Rijk started his own workshop in 1987. From here, he - apart from creating designs of his own - works on commission for architects like O.M.A. and Rem Koolhaas and conducts research into new materials.

His ceramic bowls are studies in size and proportion. Starting off with a parabolic form, De Rijk's intention has been to make a range of shapes by determining the smallest possible changes in size that result in substantial differences. Through fine calculation, a matrix of 54 different sizes has been developed that can form many different sets of tableware.
