Roy Van Rijt Portrait

From a passion for literature and language  Roy compiled a unique vocabulary for three-dimensional design. Much of his work is based on a story, a story he sees when he looks at something other people have discarded. If you’re sitting comfortably, Roy will begin…



Up-cycling is second-nature to Roy, he was doing this long before the phrase had been coined. He takes things of no worth and breathes new life into them. Creating intriguing, functional, must-haves that respect the origins of the materials.  Who knows what he’ll make next.


Cabinets of Curiosity

We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

Work in progress
