Studio Makkink & Bey is led by architect Rianne Makkink and designer Jurgen Bey. Supported by a design team, they have been operating their design practice since 2002. Studio Makkink & Bey investigates the various domains of applied art while studying the tension between the private and public domain.Taking a critical stance towards the designing of public spaces, architecture, interiors, exhibitions and products is pivotal. The studio is located in an old industrial building enabling the entire production to take place on site.The design team operates as one entity and includes experts of various disciplines ranging from fashion, design and architecture. The goal of our studio is to entice a new design culture by showing alternatives through critical design. Analytical design is the foundation of a new culture in a city, public building or house.
