Studio Drift

Ralph Nauta and Lonneke Gordijn founded their design practice Studio Drift in 2006, a year after they graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven, with the aim of pursuing the idea of both reacting to and questioning human behavior with their creations. Nauta’s skills and experience in terms of craftsmanship and technology, and Gordijn’s feel for forms and concepts complement each other perfectly. Their designs inventively unite nature and technology, ideology and reality. Using the best materials available and state-of-the-art production technology they implement highly original design projects, for which they have already won several awards, for example in 2008 for their Fragile Future lighting installation at the Light of the Future competition held by the German Design Council, or the Moët Hennessy–Pavilion of Art and Design London Prize in 2010 for their Concrete Chandelier from the Fragile Future collection, an installation that was purchased by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
