WARD’s work is characterized by experimenting with materials. It is his mission to interpret the diversity of techniques and materials and translate them in contemporary designs that pay attention to detail and finish. WARD wants to show how the materials, and the way in which they are processed, influence the shape. The element of surprise is essential in his work.
Ward Wijnant (1987, Tilburg) developed during his studies at the Wood and Furniture College various furniture making techniques and a broad material knowledge. However, the manufacture of a furniture piece was not enough for him; Ward missed depth, creativity and the story behind an object. At the Design Academy Eindhoven, he learned conceptual thinking and working. He graduated as an independent designer and started his own company in 2015.
