Studio Wieki Somers, Designer (Netherland)

Wieki Somers (1976) and Dylan van den Berg (1971) work together under the name Studio Wieki Somers. Following their studies at the Design Academy in Eindhoven they set up their practice in Schiedam and Rotterdam. They undertake commissions for international companies, museums and galleries such as Galerie Kreo in Paris. They design for manufacture and for small-scale artisanal production and at a variety of scales, for interiors and public spaces.

Studio Wieki Somers’ work can be described as a subtle interplay of imaginative content and sophisticated use of materials; intuition is combined with the ability to pose unusual questions. Daily objects are turned into an aesthetic (sometimes emotional) experience. The balance between reason and intuition lends their work a poetic resonance, while also leaving room for future users to exercise their own imagination. Products that have garnered considerable international attention include Bath Boat, High Tea Pot, Blossoms, Bellflower and Merry-go-round Coatrack. Works by Studio Wieki Somers are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
