Arnout Visser

Arnout Visser has been working on his own as well as on commissioned collections since 1991, bridging disciplines from product to furniture and interior to graphic design: employing a wide variety of materials from glass and ceramics to plastics, metal and even water. Ideas for his designs are often initiated by physical or mechanical laws. If he has any preference, it’s perhaps for glass and its multiple applications: from the useful to the decorative, he forms these shapes into innovative functions. In this way he follows the great tradition of inventors and scientists, satisfying his fascination with unlimited applications of the ancient material, glass.

Visser’s work, awarded with many international prizes, is easily recognizable by its strict adherence to the basic purpose of the object, giving it the definitive form required to fulfil its function. He is an ingenious disciple of the great tradition of the Bauhaus and its derivative movements, although with a unique sense of humor. For when he decides to add a personal touch, it is unexpected, a glimpse of what he calls a “private joke” between him and his medium that speaks of a relationship between man and matter far beyond the purely functional.
