Product designers shape the world. Whether it’s traditional craftsmanship or innovative technology from the 3D printer, the form of things determines the way we use and how we experience them. Sometimes form follows function, sometimes form follows fun.
We proudly present our selection of great product designers and their creations:
Pallet Bed by Littlebitdifferent
David Kroupa from Asterdam is the face behind Littlebitdifferent: "I basically create and collect handmade, useful, personalized objects. Sometimes this means furniture, sometimes interior design, a garden house, a camper interior, or even an F16 jetfighter cockpit made out of wood. I always try to approach things from a different angle, with a different touch. I just like it a littlebitdifferent." – David
