Marjolein Grotenhuis has a passion for textiles, color and prints. As a designer she uses colour as the essence of her work, not as a detail. Grotenhuis is born in 1987 in Zieuwent, the Netherlandand she is graduated in Product Design at ArtEZ School of the Arts in 2016. Marjoleins work arises from an experimental and investigative, hands-on mentality. Mostly with a focus on the material and main thing: colour. Undoubtedly, her specialization took place in the screen printing workshop. With this craftsmanship as a favorite, she sought more challenges. This chance she received by studying for 5 months at Aalto University in Helsinki, where she gained knowledge and experience about crafts such as printing, knitting and weaving. Marjolein works from her studio at Industrial Park Kleefse Waard (IPKW). From this studio she will continue working on her collection and new ideas will be developed. All her products that are applicable in the an interior and / or on a body. In her graduation collection ‘Vals Plat, all the ingredients that feature Marjoleins work come together: silk screen, printing, colors, textiles and paper. Created with in depth knowledge and free experimentation. Grotenhuis’ loves to combine high tech with the handmade.
