Award winning designerJoey Ruiter wonders what makes the objects around us so desirable.  He takes these thoughts all the way to working, full-sized prototypes. This free-range thinking, building, and testing, provides new insights for clients in various industries.  He believes that we need to expand our thinking way outside of the boundaries we put on ourselves.  He usually ignores what he should do and does what most will say he shouldn't.  It isn't hard, its just a commitment to thinking differently.  Join us on April 18th when Joey Ruiter will conduct an open dialogue on his processes, successes and failures.

Joey Ruiter is redefining expectations in the world of art and design. A major influence in the global design community, he has earned best-in-class recognition for his work. His signature is design that meets everyday needs in surprising ways — pushing limits to confront established expectations. His eclectic mix ranges from office furniture to sculpture, concept watercraft to household objects, even bicycles and birdhouses.  “I see the designer’s role to lead people to what’s next…to push, to imagine, to create something great. It is important to me that people find a relationship with the objects that I create, inspiring creates new stories, memories and interactions with each other. Ultimately, that’s really what it’s all about.”
