"Comfort is always the primary concern"
What is the most important aspect of seating? Natalie Buijs (1968) doesn’t need to think for long before arriving at an answer. Comfort is always the primary concern in her designs. The challenge is designing comfortable seating that looks good at the same time. For larger pieces of furniture, she keeps the basic shape very simple. If the proportions are right, the details make the difference. These were skills she honed during her course in Industrial Design at the Delft University of Technology. After graduating in 1994, she worked on the product development of household appliances, followed by furniture.
