Studio Mieke Meijer is a collaboration between Mieke Meijer and Roy Letterlé.
Meijer (Wezep, 1982) graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven. Letterlé (Kerkrade, 1978) studied structural engineering at PTH Eindhoven. From their workshop in Eindhoven (NL) they work on self-initiated and commissioned projects. Meijer and Letterlé both lecture and give workshops at various educational and cultural Institutions. Currently they teach at Design Academy Eindhoven and HKU University of the Arts Utrecht. Next to this they are co-founders of NewspaperWood BV.
The works of Studio Mieke Meijer start from constructions and architectonic shapes to form alternate spatial structures where the interplay between space and its surroundings are central. The studio works within the liminal field between architecture and product design. This enables Studio Mieke Meijer to move freely, regardless of architectural restrictions and outside the boundaries of the traditional product.
Manifest in the works of Studio Mieke Meijer are the constructive form language, clean lines and industrial details. These aesthetic characteristics often relate directly to their architectural references. The studio reconstructs and rescales spatial imageries of buildings and architectonic constructions to create new functional installations. The works, therefore, are reinterpreted reminders of our daily constructed and engineered surroundings.
Studio Mieke Meijer offers unique solutions to practical interior design challenges. In close collaboration with architects, interior designers and private clients, she realises functional and spatial interventions renowned for their autonomous character. The works of the studio allow the user to continuously re-define the functionalities of the object. The designs do not regulate a singular use. Spaces and volumes thus become elements with which the user can create his/her own work or living environment.
All designs are executed in Studio Mieke Meijer’s own workshop, where craft is combined with modern industrial techniques. Here the passion for material and detail come forward and enhance the strong and recognizable signature of the studio where skill and technique are essential.
