Stijn Ossevoort is a creative Dutch designer who currently lives and
works in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. He has an unusual background in both art (Royal College of Art, London) and engineering (Delft University of Technology). By hiding or beautifying complex technology, Stijn allows the user to connect with objects in a magical way, playing on the elements of touch, sound and movement to create new relationships. His work varies from Jewellery and common household products to fashion menswear and female clothing. He has been working for Ron Arad, Philips and Prada and has been a visiting professor at Central Saint Martins College in London and the (former) Interaction Design Institute in Ivrea. He currently teaches at the Luzern school of Art and Design and the Avans Hogeschool in Breda, the Netherlands.
Stijn Ossevoort collection 1
My collection is inspired by roller derby’s, a contact sport played by tough girls. These girls wear quads, roller-skates fitted with some sturdy boots.
Originally quads were elegant ice-skate boots fitted on rollers, over the years quads have evolved into strong colourful laced-up boots with block-like heels.
I created a small collection inspired by the look of quads, merging the strong and powerful look with the elegance of old skates into some classic shoes for though ladies.
