Ineke Hans was born in 1966 in the Netherlands. Since graduating from the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Arnhem (NL) in 1991 and the Royal College of Art in London in 1995, Ineke Hans her work has evolved in many ways, acquiring the identity most clearly of a designer, with the impulses of a sculptor, and the industrial experience needed to define products with a commercial life. She worked for three years for HABITAT UK on their mass-produced furniture and product collections and in 1998 started to work from Holland. Here she founded her studio INEKEHANS/ARNHEM.
