Designer Hella Jongerius (b. 1963, the Netherlands) graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in 1993, and in that same year formed her own design company, JongeriusLab. She was a participant in the first, now-historic Droog Design exhibition, presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan in 1994. Several of her works from that collection, as well as more recent specially commissioned projects, are now included in the permanent collections of
leading international art museums, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, New York; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and the Design Museum, London.
In addition to her collaboration with Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum, Jongerius has partnered with several important industrial partners over the past decade, including Maharam, USA; Vitra, Switzerland; Nymphenburg, Germany; Belux, Switzerland; and IKEA, Sweden. Since 1996, Ms. Jongerius has continued to collaborate with Moss on one-off and limited-edition projects.
