Matthijs Kok is a Product Designer based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Product Design at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam in 2015. In his work he focuses on experimenting with material possibilities and production techniques, exploring the thin line between contemporary art and design. Sculptural, yet functional.
Matthijs started to work for 3D Systems in 2013 as a Product Designer and 3D modeler, translating the possibilities and innovations of 3D printing into design for consumer products and interior accessories. Since mid-2016 he started to work as the Creative Director of Freshfiber, a premium lifestyle brand bringing revolutionary technologies such as 3D printing to stores worldwide. Here, together with his team, he develops consumer products such as wearables, accessories and lighting, combining unique design possibilities and playfulness with revolutionary technologies to create pieces that cross the line between sculpture and industrial design, resulting in unique objects that leave a long lasting impression.
As well being a designer, Matthijs likes to curate and photograph products and share them on Pinterest. He has a following of around 28.000 people. He’s worked on promotional photography projects for many brands, including VERK Watches, Nuura Lighting, Cloudnola Clocks, Freshfiber, Horizn Studios, WXY Candles, Memobottle, Kapten & Son Watches, Faune Magazine, THIS ORIENT’ Magazine and Our Theory Of Watches.
