Hella Jongerius

Designer and tireless researcher, she is well known for her never-ending colour and material study.

Designer and tireless researcher Hella Jongerius joined the Mutina team in 2018. She designed the Diarama collection.

Born in the Netherlands but based in Berlin, Hella Jongerius is well known for her never-ending colour and material research where she combines the traditional with the contemporary in order to create products with individual character by including craft elements in the industrial production process.

“Colour is a material to me. As an industrial designer, I realised that I wouldn’t be able to use all the tones I wanted to, in the way an artist does, because the palette used in the industry is very limited. That is why I work so intensely with colours: I want to change their quality, I want them to breathe with light.”

She founded Jongeriuslab in 1993, where both independent projects and works for major clients are developed. The designer also acts as Art Director for Vitra and Design Director for Danskina, Kvadrat and Maharam’s rug atelier.

In 2017, Jongerius received the Sikkens Prize, thanks to her special contribution to the field of color. Furthermore, many of her products can be found in the permanent collections of important museums, such as MoMA (New York), the Victoria and Albert Museum (London) and Boijmans van Beuningen Museum (Rotterdam).
