Joost Van Bleiswijk
Joost van Bleiswijk was born in Delft and graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2011. Since then, he’s mainly worked on his own collections in which the no glue no screw series has become a major part and every year no glue no screw has become more complicated, interesting and architectural. A student of the past Joost has researched hundreds of years of product design and as a result draws inspiration from forgotten objects such as grandfather clocks, hourglasses and goblets, anything in fact that he feels has a story to tell. Joost’s work and collections are exhibited and sold worldwide at galleries and museums including Moss Gallery in New York, Galerie Vivid in Rotterdam, Design Museum Holon in Israel and the Zuiderzee Museum in The Netherlands. In addition he also designs for other companies such as Ahrend, Bernhardt, Bruut Furniture, City of Eindhoven, Design Connection, Lebesque and Secondome.
