Design by Jan Willem van Elten

In addition to the LEAFIES, I also design various products on behalf of labels or in-house.

A number of these objects are for sale here.

The minimalist design focuses attention on the products you want to display without being completely self-effacing. The wooden knobs on the design give the whole a friendly appearance and the rack is easy to attach to the wall without visible mounting.

Nature conquers all. That is the idea behind this vase. Near an abandoned car or house you sometimes see a tree growing right through it. This vase was designed based on this principle. It is as if the flowers break the pipe and grows unchecked.

Who hasn't made castles on the beach or in the sandbox in the past? Now take this feeling home with this candle holder. Made entirely of sand and a little bit of magic!

Jan Willem believes that the great thing about product design is creating something tangible that once started as a thought. That translation from idea to product is what Jan Willem is good at. “a chair or table where people live and where memories are created.” - In his work, Jan Willem strives for a minimalist and accessible design with its own identity. “You can design a chair as crazy and original as you want, but in the end it remains just a chair that has to be comfortable, be manufacturable, but also sell. And all this with minimal impact on the environment. For that reason, Jan Willem also calls his designs: “a friend to everyone with character” realistic products that make the user, producer and nature happy.
