Mieke van den Hout
Hello, this is Studio Mieke Lucia.
With a playful approach and a love of textiles and color, Mieke Lucia explores new paths in design with an emphasis on acoustic solutions.
Mieke Lucia van den Hout (1986) founded her studio in 2015 after graduating Product Design at ArtEZ school of Arts in Arnhem, the Netherlands.
Mieke creates textile objects for interiors that enhances acoustics and stimulate the imagination.
Good acoustics are essential to achieve a comfortable work and living space and the use of colour has a positive effect on our well-being. There are a lot of acoustic solutions that are hidden, standard or a bit dull. It is a missed opportunity that they don’t compliment the space they’re in.
Mieke works with various materials that inspire her, cought her eye and have the common quality of sound absorption. Her work consists of innovative and technical materials such as Colback®, polyester wool and PET felt. Natural materials like hand dyed yarns, recycled fibres and sheep wool are also widely used in the studio. It is interesting how a material can increase in value by how it’s used or processed.
"I love to explore a material or a technique with my hands and to react intuitively to my experiences in the process".
Studio Mieke Lucia is eager to show the value of textile in our surroundings. By combining crafts and industrial techniques new potential arise, resulting in clear bold designs.
