I grew up in Rijssen in Twente, where I studied at the Academy in Zwolle. Way before my study I was already collecting furniture as a hobby. I was always attracted to old design objects. Because of their lived through appearance, the craftsmanship with which they were made, the colors and the used (or even unused) state of the objects that are more than half a century old. Very soon after my study I realized that I wanted to turn my passion into my profession. It is a job I could create myself therefore I established Electic-20 three years ago.
