About Studio Overvelde

Studio Overvelde (est. 2017) is the design lab of artist Sanne Overvelde-Slagman. Studio Overvelde specializes in mathematical approaches and so-called “architected materials”, materials that are original and extrapolations of Bas Overvelde’s cutting-edge scientific research. These new materials come to life in the interactive innovations that evoke poetic visions where people, science, technology and art conveniently collide. Studio Overvelde invites you to become part of these metamorphoses. Be a part of it and follow us on Instagram and Twitter.

… and its philosophy

Artists and scientists share a curiosity for the unknown, an appreciation for the beauty of the worlds they explore and an interest in asking questions and creating something new. In both disciplines, solutions do not always spring from a place that is recognizable. It is like tracing steps in the absence of rational consciousness, sometimes even fictional tales. An impulse sparking from the element of play in the development stage of the design process: it is a key factor in furthering the arts as well as scientific research. And that is why we work with scientists, artists, kids, architects, teachers, museums and the private sector all over the world… to keep the creative juices flowing and to tell new stories together.
