Ineke Hans Studio

Working on products and projects feels like solving design sudokus, with many issues to fit in. Functionality, economics, poetry, sustainability, aesthetics, efficiency, psychology, technology, anthropology are just some. 
Vernacular: 
There were times when the word design did not exist. People made chairs from oak when there was an oak-filled forest around the corner, and if it was a beech forest you would get beech-wood furniture. Products were vernacular; being practical was more important that style: if a chair needed more support an extra plank would be nailed between its legs. We dealt with things by using our common sense, used things we found around us and came up with ad hoc solutions.
Sometimes work of Ineke Hans is said to have a folklore touch, and it is valued for being plain and down-to-earth at the same time. Both are not styling issues for her but more results of using common sense.
