For me interior design is about space, but most of all about people. It is about you and your identity. Whether it is brand or personal identity, it is about you and your comfort & ease. In my work as a conceptional interior architect I translate your identity into an interior design.
As I put all my love into your design, my personal characteristics are my design signature:
no nonsense | As I believe in action rather than words, I create peace, unity and functionality into space. Often translated into customized furniture, as part of the architecture itself.
elegance | My interior designs form a well-thought-out elegance, in which all parts harmoniously fit into each other.
sparkling | As I am often called "never a dull moment", why shouldn't my interior designs be the same? ;) A spark celebrates life!
In 2011 I graduate at the architectural design department of the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. A year after I both win the public price & the award Elle Decoration Design Talent Award by Cappellini with product Flip. Studio Vanessa van Tiggelhoven is born. Furniture line BenJaMin under my own label & kids collection Kids Forest for the Portuguese label Muratto follow. Eventually I return to my true passion: interior architecture.
