Rick Minkes (1986, Groningen, the Netherlands) is Lensvelt’s Lead Product Developer: an essential link between the designers and factories.
He’s Cum Laude graduate of Delft University, Rick earned his Master’s degree in Industrial Design with an internationally renowned thesis on office furniture in a flex environment. At Lensvelt, he develops products with Joep van Lieshout, Studio Job, Richard Hutten & Nina Graziosi. Working efficiently and with a down-to-earth attitude, he knows how to extract the essence of a design with academic precision, translating outlines into timeless, serial designs. Love for sharp lines, clear volumes and pristine proportions form the foundation of my work.
