About me

Fascinated by aesthetics and the human imagination, Simone Smelt combines dark and endless imaginative concepts with minimal aestetics. Simone Smelt recently graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven, her two graduation projects "speculum" and "30x30" will be presented at the upcoming Dutch Design Week this October. Simone Smelt often creates a poetic visual concept followed up by playing with materials and colors to unveil the concept and create a fitting feeling. Focussing on dynamic and transformable objects to create a sustainable solution to boredom; dynamic design can be an ever surprising journey.
