Debbie Wijskamp studied Product Design at the University of the Arts in Arnhem, the Netherlands. After her graduation in 2009 she has been operating her design practice. She designs and produces her own collection of handmade interior products and other objects, and collaborates with and designs for companies and brands. In 2016 she opened her new atelier space, gallery and shop in Fashion & Design District ‘Het Modekwartier’ in Arnhem. She runs courses and workshops from her atelier, and gives guest lectures at art universities. Her work can be found in various collections all over the world.

“I get inspired by everyday objects and materials that we are surrounded by and I push the boundaries of materials to create new possibilities for objects like furniture and interior products. Much of my work is made from ‘upcycled’ or natural materials. I have special interest in working with old paper.”
