Jurgen Bey: Dutch Designer with a Twist

Jurgen Bey is a Dutch design master. He takes simple objects and transform them into furniture/art pieces with his very own vision. Bey is famous for his Tree-trunk bench with classical chair backs ($16,000 at Droog), his Light Shade Shade (Moooi) and his Earchair with giant ears, which allow peoples to have private conversation in public spaces.

Bey owns his design company Prooff, in the Netherlands (watch video below).

In the early ’90s Bey attended the Academy of Industrial Design in Eindhoven (currently the Design Academy).

Droog has been an advocate of his work from the very beginning, work that has in turn helped shape the image of Dutch design on an international level.
