|JEROEN WAND (1985) studied product design at the Academy of fine Arts and Design in Maastricht (NL), in 2008 he graduated with an MA at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam (NL). Currently, Jeroen Wand lives and works in Eindhoven.
Studio Jeroen Wand creates products and objects where traditional combinations of materials and techniques are modified, altered or reinvented, culminating into unconventional production processes such as paper laminating or plaster rotation moulding.
The work of the studio is the result of experiments and research where the method of production directly influences the form and function.
Seemingly useless pieces of leftover veneer are pressed together to form a sturdy whole. A labor-intensive process that leads to an elegant visual language with some rough edges.The technique that is used stems from the industrial process of laminating. Here this technique is executed manually. By pressing the different layers of veneer together in a specific mold, the material is shaped and gains its strength.
