Chris Slutter (1972) ended his studies in 1997 at the Academy of Visual Art and Design (AKI) in Enschede. He won the Dutch Furniture Prize with his design of the ‘Lazy' lamp in the ‘Young Designers' category during the same year.
In addition, he received an honorary mention in the ‘Industrial Product Quality' category.
Chris Slutter move to Amsterdam three years after this study, where he opened his own design studio in which he works as an independent designer.
Slutter's designs are the result of an intensive searching process, in which he explores all possibilities of materials and handicraft techniques.
A functional, clear and qualitative basis results from that, with a design vocabulary which one understands directly. "People must understand what I make. A chair remains recognizable as a chair in which one can sit comfortably."
