Studio Makkink & Bey

Jurgen Bey graduated from the Design Academy in Eindhoven and then started Studio Jurgen Bey. In 2002, he founded Studio Makkink & Bey with Rianne Makkink. Their projects focus on a detailed integration of architecture and design. Their clients are predominantly Dutch.

Bey also teaches at the Royal College of Art in London. Jurgen Bey always analyses the objects around him. He is touched by their beauty and sees no reason to add new objects to existing objects. His preference goes out to creating a new world of things with which we are already familiar.

Jurgen Bey on the four rooms that he designed:
“Hotels and hotel rooms have to be able to swiftly become home for a constant flow of guests. For this reason, rooms are often designed to a standard that is repeated in every other room. The personal character of home is hardly even approached if nothing in the room is given extra attention or emphasis. In the four interiors of rooms 1, 2, 3 and 4, Studio Makkink & Bey has made mutual uniform relationships between the furniture more fanciful so that each room has acquired a specific character and has become an individual world. Interference has been minimal so that the room remains recognisable as a hotel room and the situation affords only a short glimpse of an illogical world than can be home for a week or a weekend.”

Room 1 – Push Start
Room 2 – Fremdkörper
Room 3 – Bedspread Frontier
Room 4 – Crayon Room
