Nieuwe Heren


Freely translated as ‘New Gents’ was founded ’09 by Erik De Nijs and Tim Smit.

Erik (’85) and Tim (’88) both graduated from the University of the arts Utrecht (Holland) in 2009. After some successful cooperation’s during their study, they decided that their comparable vision and ideas, would make a great team for a fertile collaboration.

Design

At Nieuwe Heren we design products that are more than just aesthetics. We hold the belief there are enough meaningless products already. That is why we’re aiming for timeless designs with a focus on durability. For this reason we prefer materials like steel,concrete and wood (and because they’re just badass) We think a clear story behind a product contributes to the sustainability as well.

Interior

Together with our clients we design experiences for spaces. This can be a well-set interior design for a bar/restaurant as well as a full approach for a children hospital. The combination of our product knowledge with our creative vision of spatial design is a mix that is unlikely to deliver a dull interior.

Concepts

Products are more than just objects to enrich your interior. Luckily our knowledge of design stretches beyond the realm of furniture. We also come up with complete ideas and technical drawings for our clients. Ranging from gardening tools to shopper activating products.

“In our designs we’re actually quite selfish, we design what we like. We just hope the rest of the world likes it too.”
