Tineke Beunders & Nathan Wierink
Collaboration is important
Tineke Beunders as Nathan Wierink both graduated from the Design Academy in Eindhoven in 2008. There they got to know each other and worked together on various projects. Their mission: turning magical ideas into reality and surprising the world. They established their design partnership while still students in 2005, which shows how important their collaboration is for them.
Tineke Beunders is the dreamer of the two. She likes to fantasise all day, and tries to come up with different ideas than everyone else. This often results in surprising ideas that are in no way restricted by physical limitations. Whether it is feasible or technically possible, this is not something Tineke Beunders ponders too much about. She often creates designs with an, at first glance, impossible shape or material.
Turn into reality
The realist of the two is Nathan Wierink who is happy to use the idea and help Tineke Beunders get started. He disappears into the duo's workshop, and when he comes out, he always seems to have found a solution to Tineke's fairy tale-like ideas. How he does it is a mystery to many, but the fact that he gets the job done is clear. And then the fairy tale starts all over again, and they live happily ever after.
