intro:
Eric Klarenbeek (Amsterdam, 1978) graduated in 2003 at The Design Academy Eindhoven. Since then he has designed for i.e. Davidoff, Droog Design, Moooi, Jurgen Bey, Studio Edelkoort, the city of Amsterdam and the province Gelderland, besides teaching at the Art Academy Enschede (AKI). His projects, such as The Floating Light Project, Poekie and Eye Jewellery are picked up by media worldwide. Due to its innovative character The Floating Light Project was rewarded with "De Willie Wortel Prijs", the award for innovative design at The Design Academy Eindhoven, and honoured for the Apartprize 2006.

'My work is characterized by interaction and innovation. My products can be in motion, react on our presence or respond on developments in our society. I search for new meaning and principles in objects, for unexplored connections between materials, production methods, makers and users. Scale and appliance are irrelevant. I've designed jewellery, but also developed concepts to connect tourists to local craftsmen'.

'Cities and infrastructures are remodelled during time. Spaces and buildings are being re-structured for new appliances. Products that surround us are increasingly dependent on upgrades, even our body. This brought us awareness that an invention is made in a moment of time, and that we have to incorporate growth. We design evolution from our creations and therefore our natural balance. As creators we have to foresee the significance of certain choices. Here is where I find myself as a designer. How will the world evolve in the future, or how will our present time appear in a parallel world, with equal ingredients but different visions and choices?'.

Recent projects are experiments with robotics, solar and wind energy, light conduction through glass, as well as interior and public space projects.
