London, 2015-'17

Aware of a rapid changing reality for furniture design with changing production, promotion and selling methods, a surplus of furniture in a society where people move to smaller houses and offices and a society on the edge of consuming less Ineke Hans wanted to focus on 'future scenarios for furniture design' and consequently 'the changing role of the designer'. To do so she has started studio|salon in London in 2015.
