Designer Erwin Zwiers
Erwin Zwiers is a creator by nature. The paintings and constructions he created as a kid, were an expression of his never-ending curiosity. Erwin is fascinated and inspired by materials with unique characteristics. The exploration of newly discovered materials in his own experimental way, often leads to ideas that are the start of new products and objects.
To gain knowledge about materials and production techniques, he learned the craft of furniture design at HMC Amsterdam from 2001 until 2005. His eagerness for more depth in design wasn’t tempered. So he continued studying Product design at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht from 2005 until 2009. There he further developed his own methods and style. His acclaimed graduation project has led to many national and international exhibitions.
After his studies Erwin has started Studio Erwin Zwiers to continue creating beautiful products and objects. His collection Twisted was successfully received by press and architects. It has led to multiple collaborations, including a presentation at Salone Del Mobile 2012 in Milan with the renowned Italian furniture brand Poliform.
Today, Studio Erwin Zwiers presents an independent collection of products that is developed and produced in his workshop. Besides the product collection, Erwin also collaborates with architects to create unique interiors. Quality and flexibility are guaranteed by this way of working.
If Erwin isn’t at the studio, big change you find him at the beach. Kite surfing in the always-different sea or wandering at the beach looking for inspiring washed ashore objects. The beach is one of Erwin’s great sources of inspiration, which is reflected in his work.
