Bertjan Pot was born 1975 in Nieuwleusen, the Netherlands (a small town in the east of the country). He now lives in Rotterdam working on various projects. Sometimes he initiates a project himself because he likes it so much that he feels that it just has to be made. Sometimes he is commissioned to do a project because other people like his work. Bertjan's main fascination is material and production processes.
In design, Bertjan flirts with computer esthetics and industrial production methods, but without using a computer (at least not as a design tool) and sometimes also without the industrial production method. Almost all designs come from experiments in materials, old and new. The way a product feels is just as important as the way it looks.
