Dutch Artist Paula Arntzen, born in 1980, is currently working in Arnhem where she has her own design studio. Arntzen studied traditional furniture making at HMC in Amsterdam before she studied Product Design at ArtEZ Academy of the Arts in Arnhem. Paula's Designs represent a combination of the lightness, colour and monumental shaping. Her designs find their origin in a fascination for grand forms and qualities of a material. After constant study and observation she managed to obtain a deep knowledge and understanding of the material and it unique characteristics. This is a procedure through which the designer decides not only on the form and shape but also on the elements that will determine and lead to a multifunctional object/ project creation. A creation that will serve both decorative and functional roles in a space.
