Dick van Hoff was born in Amsterdam in 1971 and graduated from Arnhem's School of Art in 1996. Now based in the Velp region of the Netherlands, van Hoff has produced a steady stream of exquisitely crafted and rigorously produced designs for both his own studio and for companies including Droog, Rosenthal, Royal Tichelaar Makkum and Weltevree.


Through his own work and as a tutor at the Eindhoven Design Academy, Dick van Hoff has played a major role in shaping the future of a post-Droog Dutch school of design thought. His promotion of fine craftsmanship coupled with industrial techniques has forged a revived interest in the modernist principals of form, function and appropriateness.
