HandMade Industrials, founded by Rutger de Regt and Marlies van Putten, is an experimental design studio creating objects by process driven design concepts.
By experimenting with materials and techniques we create our own production processes which enables us to explore and invent furniture objects uninhibited by industrial restrictions. All our projects are made by and in the HandMade Industrial studio, from series to one-off all products are unique and have a handmade quality.
Founders Rutger de Regt and Marlies van Putten met during their studies at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. They share the same interest in experimental design by process based principles. While Rutger is keen on social and inventive themes, Marlies is more poetic in her work as a designer. After an invitation to create a piece for a charity design auction, Rutger de Regt invited Marlies van Putten to join the project. This was the start of the collaboration that led to the founding of HandMade Industrials. By teaming up they discovered that their work and philosophy could make a difference for the designer makers of this time.
