Among Wubben’s groundbreaking collections is Erosion, a collaboration with Cor Unum ceramics studio, which includes bowls, cups and pots. The ingenious range, emblematic of the artist’s personal and intensely conceptual process, was created using a rotating central blowtorch which applies heat to the surface of the wet ceramic objects.

Pushing the limits of material and craftsmanship, Wubben is known for bold experimentation. Crystal Shift, a lighting collaboration first shown during Dutch Design Week, paired organic hanging acrylic sculpture made with LED lighting. A testament to his versatility and collaborative spirit, Wubben also created the Upside Down chair, crafted from an inverted willow tree with supports of winging twigs that give the appearance of a live organic, live tree.

A unique ability to pivot between creating sculptural one-of-a-kind pieces and studio made products coveted by design fans, Wubben possesses a chameleonic appeal. An interest in process has led to numerous critically acclaimed collections, including the Pressed Epoxy Vases - a range of vessels created with a “pressing-machine,” a process which puts an entirely new spin on craftsmanship.

Studio Floris Wubben is located in Amsterdam, a city increasingly recognized for its cutting edge design scene. The studio’s designs are unique and each offer a new exploration of material and style. Wubben’s collections appear in museums including the Design Museum Holon, Israel, The Museum of Art and Design, New York, Gewerbe, Winterthur, Mint Museum and the Museum of Arts and Design, Singapore.

Floris Wubben primarily works in ceramic, but has used other materials with his work, such as wood and glass. The use of resin on ceramic allows him to create very large scale work. The downloadable PDF is to describe these methods, show different finishes, and so as to inspire future works and collaborations. The below gallery of images shows previous examples of commissioned work.
