Chardé Brouwer is fascinated with new materials and techniques. As a designer, she is trying to combine her fascination for materials with the ever-changing design industry which results in new ideas for a better future and better understanding of sustainability.
We are used to the combinations of certain shapes, colors and materials. Think of an apple, it is round. Or concrete, that is hard. But what happens if we get started with the existing combinations and soften an apple square and concrete, for example? Then we start to experience things in a different way. That is the core of Studio CB’s work: it offers new perspectives by imagining what it could be like, instead of what it is.
