Studio Henny van Nistelrooy is a Beijing based design studio working in product, interior and spatial installations. We work with an international outlook for Chinese and international clients with a focus on Asia.
"Henny’s design practice is fascinated by the making of things. He questions and retraces industrial processes, rearranging traditional methods of manufacture to create innovative objects and generate new meanings. Every Studio Henny van Nistelrooy product is the result of a concept tested to its limits and resolved with elegance, efficiency and skill."
