Chris Slutter was born in 1972 in Terborg, the Netherlands, into a household familiar with all aspects of furniture and interior design. He graduated in 1997 from the AKI Enschede with a BA degree in architectural/industrial design. The same year he won prestigious prize for best young Dutch designer with his leaning lamp Lazy.
Following his studies he worked for the next three years in Enschede on a number of diverse projects and designs. Later he moved to Amsterdam opening his own Design studio form where he still works today.
The work from Chris Slutter can best be described as a search for the simplified form through design, and the ongoing investigation of how the process of design affects the final products.
Through this method of questioning he can stay true to the materials he uses which are central to his work. This cogitate process formulates a functional basis that expresses itself by clarity and quality in the completed design.
Chris Slutter's designs are produced in small series; he also makes 3D prototype models for clients and himself giving rise to an overall vision of the product.
Much of Chis's client base ist to be found in the multinational and architectural environment as well as the private sector.
