Klaas Kuiken's products and designs arise from a fascination with the creative process and its influence on the final result. Even though Klaas is clearly a product designer, when busy in his workshop he's more like a skilled craftsman and curious inventor. It will come of no surprise that the Discovery Channel TV show 'How it's made' is one of Klaas' biggest sources of inspiration. This program sparked a fascination for mass production and the question 'what is the influence of mass production in relation to the identity of products?' became a central theme in his work.
