About


Janina Loeve (1984) is a young designer who translates innovating concepts into useful everyday objects.

She designs products mostly for the interior, furniture and objects for eating and living. The designs have a distinct identity

and shape but also a timeless quality. Form and material research explore the boundaries to get the most out of the concept.

The product should speak for itself.

 

'Designing is adding value and personality to everyday objects. Important values to me are awareness and respect of quality,

tradition and sustainability. Therefore I design with an appreciation for materials and detail and I work with a controlled, often

crafted, production. A concept is leading my design through many layers of consideration: durability, functionality, sustainability,

aesthetics and crafts. I like to give people a new view on the world of objects surrounding us.'

 

Studio Janina Loeve was founded in 2010 by Dutch designer Janina Loeve, after she graduated from the renowned Design

Academy Eindhoven. As a young designer she works on self-initiated projects and exhibitions, as well as commissioned work.

As an independent designer she sell products to companies as well as private individuals. Her commissioned work is divers,

from concept to product development.
