Studio Nienke Hoogvliet is a design studio for material research, experimental and conceptual design. They use design as a tool to shape holistic perspectives.
The studio is founded by Nienke Hoogvliet (1989). She graduated from Lifestyle & Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy, Rotterdam.
The studio engages in freelance projects for different companies and institutions but also continues research in self-initiated design projects. The studio is based in The Hague, The Netherlands.
Since the studio was founded in 2013 they have a main focus on materials that can contribute to a more holistic world. The projects raise awareness of social and environmental problems in the textile, leather and food industry. By creating innovative alternatives they hope to change perspectives and systems.
Nienke grew up near the beach, her connection to the ocean was the foundation of the research into seaweed and fish skin. In the project SEA ME the studio researches how seaweed can contribute to a more sustainable textile industry. Although the research is ongoing, the findings were published in the books ‘Seaweed Research’ and ‘Fish Leather’.
After years of research on natural seaweed dyes, Nienke also became the co-founder of Zeefier, a company focussing on producing natural seaweed dyes for the textile industry.
The work of Studio Nienke Hoogvliet has been exhibited worldwide in institutions like Artipelag, Stockholm | Centre Pompidou, Parijs | Centraal Museum, Utrecht | Cooper Hewitt Design Museum, New York | Textielmuseum, Tilburg | Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
