Atelier NL

Atelier NL is a design studio based in Eindhoven that reshapes local raw materials into everyday objects that showcase the richness of the earth.

Over the past decade Atelier NL has developed a unique research methodology that transforms local clay and sand into ceramic and glass objects that analyse the hidden qualities and narratives of the earth. Their work calls for an expanded valuation of local sourcing and production by focusing on the graceful subtleties of the natural world and the how the integration of local earth products into daily life is a critical step towards greater environmental balance.
