Floor Knaapen

Lex Pott (1985) employs a raw and intuitive method. In his work,
he returns to the origin of the materials he uses most: wood, stone and metal. He does not hide his designs under indirect layers, but reduces them to their very essence. Pott works from his design studio based in Rotterdam. He graduated cum laude in 2009 at the
Design Academy Eindhoven.
