Biography

Since opening his own studio in Rotterdam in 1991, designer Richard Hutten has paid strict heed to his own rule: “No sign of design.” His furniture and objects—many of them multi-functional—are typically monochromatic and elegant in geometry: an office set in which the chair is cut from the desk, or a child’s drinking cup with comically oversized handles that resemble “Dumbo” ears. One of the most internationally recognized Dutch designers, Hutten’s work belongs to permanent collections in museums all over the world, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
