Tim Vanlier (28) graduated in 2011 with honors from the Sint Lucas Academy in Boxtel (the Netherlands) and graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven  (the Netherlands) in 2016.

With the knowledge and experience from different schools en internships, competitions, collaborations, residency’s en workshops Tim Vanlier started his own studio called Studio Tim Vanlier in 2016.

Tim Vanlier believes in the power of craft and the act of making. With this pure and honest way of creation he would like to refer to the craft which consists of nature, strength and craftsmanship. “We as designers can build on centuries of craftsmanship knowledge.”

Within the framework of tactility he experiments with color, materials and the manufacturing process. This shapes him as a designer who works on an inquisitive and playful way with material, color and shape, which can lead to unexpected results.
