Dutch furniture and product designer and key member of design collective Droog Design

Signature products include the Dombo Mug and the Bronto Chair.

What inspired the Dombo Mug designs?
My own kids. The way children hold a mug and drink from it means the movement of the drinking is exaggerated. The Dombo Mug is as wide as a three-year-old, which makes the drinking fun. The big handles are very handy, too.

Who are your design heroes?
Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, and Gerrit Rietveld, a Dutch furniture designer and architect (1888–1964). He was part of the De Stijl movement and invented modern design. He’s still a big source of inspiration.

What is your philosophy for life? Play as much as you possibly can.

Which of your own designs is your favourite?
My two sons. They were a co-production, of course, but they are still the best things I’ve ever made.

Do you have any golden rules when it comes to design?
When I design something it should add to what already exists and bring joy to the people who use it. Things should be functional, but also humorous, friendly and surprising.|

Did you have a favourite piece of design as a child? Yes – a rocking horse that my dad made for me; that was really fun.

What would be your dream children’s product? So many: a cell phone, a see-saw, a rocking horse.

What’s the best moment of your day? The best by far is after work, when I come home and play with my children before they go to bed.

Dombo Mug £8.50, available at Places and Spaces
