Richard Hutten (Zwollerkerspel, 1967) graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1991 and started his own studio in Rotterdam. He worked on various furniture and interior design projects. He developed his own sober, no-nonsense style with the phrase “no sign of design”.
He is one of the prominent representatives of Droog Design. The design platform added a number of his designs to their collection, including the table The Cross.
The traditional production process plays a crucial role in his approach to designing and Hutten combines this with a real fascination for industrial production processes. For Lensvelt Hutten designed This, That, Than Chair and No Sign of Design.
