Dutch lifestyle brand Hutspot with concept stores in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam and Eindhoven is our official Dutch partner for the design studio's starting collection.
Hutspot with its hand-picked and pioneering assortment is a perfect match with our studio. Together we kickoff the launch of NEWTIME time 2.1 in Eindhoven.
Remi about the new partnering:
“We envision to have a very minimal selection of official partners. We select the most suitable partners in ambience, service and quality. Hutspot is a unique fit for the studio and I am very enthusiastic on us starting to work together.”
2.1 time - exhibition of the design process
This year we opened our studio doors during DDW (Dutch Design Week) to exhibit our newest design time 2.1 and its marvellous creation process in an intimate, personal setting.
“Time 2.1, a clock that embodies an intuitive and pristine way of reading time, will represent our studio and vision during DDW 2018. time 2.1 is the highlight of our collection, which we design in addition to our ongoing work for brands.”

We believe that good design is intuitive, serves people and benefits the user. Without shouting.
To provide insight into our vision, our belief and our studio, we realized a new profile page that describes just that, that describes us. Read our profile page here.
The Eindhoven based magazine Member-S came to our headquarters to see where our designs get dreamed up and created.

Dreaming to one day -before retiring- winning a Red Dot Design Award would have be a cherry on the cake. Winning this award now for designing the Carving Balance for Carving Fitness, which we worked on very hard for the last two years, really feels rewarding!
Statement by the jury:
“The Carving Balance strikes a convincing balance between elegant design and functionality and thus enhances the pleasure of working out.”
The Red Dot Organisation gave us a letter with overwhelming numbers ready to use in an impressive press release, stating with the fact that we are one of the successful winners out of 4928 entries from 56 countries, while being judged by a 38-member jury of international experts who awarded us with a Red Dot Award for high design quality.
This could easily be used to make a great impression of course, but I am prouder stating that we created this great product with a really small and dedicated team, with the core participants countable on one hand. Proud to say that our goal was not to win an award but to create the best possible fitness product we can today. I am proud to see that taking design seriously, believing in innovation and working with a good collaboration actually does reap its reward. For this I am proud!
I want to thank the people involved in this journey so far, from engineering, to manufacturing, to web development. I want to thank Twan Kuijpers, founder of Carving Fitness in particular for believing in this designer with his ideas of renewal. Hard work pays off doesn’t it?
Way too early to retire though, so up to the next award!
