Young Innovators

We consider our team of young innovators as our most valuable asset. They add enormous value for our clients and – at the same time – ask the right questions, guide us to novel solutions and make sure that we never ever get a chance to “fall asleep at the wheel”. They’re also the living proof of the world class quality of Dutch Design, as taught at our Technical Universities and Design Academies.
