Dutch designer Mae Engelgeer attended the Amsterdam Fashion Instituut where she specialised in textile design, graduating in 2004. Later she was accepted to the prestigious Master Course in Applied Arts at the Sandberg Instituut and developed her first collection of textiles at TextielLab. In 2014 Engelgeer opened her own studio in Amsterdam, working on product design and development, installations, and international collaborations.
Mae Engelgeer’s work is characterised by a typical use of colour, geometric shapes and linear elements which is unmistakably hers. An eye for detail and sense of composition are important in her designs when it comes to introducing balance throughout a design. Her style has an open character that could be described as minimalistic with a playful twist. She cleverly combines craft, new technology and materials into beautiful textiles that enrich any home, without losing ground on refinement or quality.
