Furniture designer, product designer, Groningen

Gerard de Hoop

(Stadskanaal, The Netherlands 1968) is an all-round and passionate designer. He studied Architectural and Interior Design at the Art Academy Minerva in Groningen.

His work consists of a constant search for innovation and resourcefulness in the field of functional products. His ambition is to make unique designs that carry the elements of simplicity, surprise, and versatility in them. Simplicity is mainly brought about by the use of basic geometric shapes. He always explores the boundaries of what is possible, and he is always looking for a certain tension. This element of surprise, that special effect is what he is aiming for.

A number of his furniture designs have been incorporated into the collections of international design brands.
