Jeroen de Nijs
Jeroen de Nijs After training at the Royal Art Academy in The Hague, Jeroen de Nijs started designing furniture in 2000 as a self-employed person. Free work, but also private assignments. Over time, this grew into complete interiors of homes and shops. In recent years, his assignments mainly consist of designing buildings and complete interiors, but also smaller assignments such as only a bathroom, kitchen or furniture. That this has developed in this way, as he says in his own words, is because; “As an interior architect, I have a great sense of space and atmospheres. My vision is that a building should always arise from the experience of an interior. The functions of the various spaces and the incidence of sunlight ultimately determine what a building will look like from the outside. “Jeroen de Nijs comes from a construction family in which the construction company was passed on from father to son for generations. It was expected that Jeroen de Nijs would continue this family business, but after a few years it turned out that his creativity gave him more satisfaction. However, his experience with the architectural world now appears to be of great importance in his career as a designer of buildings and interiors.
Jeroen de Nijs starts every new assignment without a biased style. Not because he is averse to repeating himself, but because no location and client are the same. It deserves its own specific solution. As a result, his designs remain authentic and radiate originality. This working method also indicates that Jeroen de Nijs subordinates his personal preference in order to be able to realize a ‘tailor-made suit’ for the client. Interior architect Jeroen de Nijs prefers to realize a project together with a client. He wants to be a partner in the entire process, inspire and complement each other, so that a project will come to a higher level. Jeroen de Nijs finds inspiration in his clients and in the location itself. They influence the space and atmosphere, which determine the shape, the materials and the detailing. Surprising lines of sight and a spacious feeling characterize his work. The consequence of this vision is that Jeroen de Nijs cannot be pigeonholed. One can speak of a recognizable manuscript in the diversity of designs that Jeroen de Nijs has carried out in recent years. This shows that he has a preference for pure materials that are traditionally processed. That raw craftsmanship gives a certain recognition to his designs. In combination with the formal language he applies, something ‘cool’ and timeless is created in his work. The final result is free from fashionable influences due to its working method. But whether it is interior, furniture or architecture, in essence Jeroen de Nijs designs space… with inspiration… … Have a nijs life!
