Broekstra, Jan

NED
*1964

Jan Broekstra is a designer of the Avantgarde. Together with Sander Luske he designed art objects, one-of-a-kind pieces and small series in the studio JKN (Jongens voor de Kleinijverheid) Arnhem, before opening his own design office. Unconventional and very functional forms are being developed through a combination of handicraft and computer design, inspiring to be creative in everyday life.
JKN Arnhem have been working for Rosenthal since 1997. Their short series »vaan FRITS«, »Nuvola«, the vase series »Sim-Sala-Bim« or the collection of pendular lights »Cocoon«, »Alien« and »Eminenz« are putting the convention of porcelain design to the test and are a manifest for freedom of thought.
