Kiki van Eijk

Poetic, playful designs refined by skilled craftsmanship

Kiki van Eijk (1978) spent her youth daydreaming and drawing outdoors. She studied at Design Academy Eindhoven, where she met her future business and life partner Joost van Bleiswijk.

Kiki van Eijk designed the slender and playful armchair Puk SZ 19 as part of the Tribute to Visser project. Her design is based on Martin Visser’s rattan chair SZ 01. The industrial steel together with the handcrafted rattan, drew her immediate attention after which she made her own rounder and more poetic version.
