Rotterdam-born Richard Hutten (born 1967) is one of the most well-known and most unconventional Dutch designers. He graduated in 1991 at the Design Academy in Eindhoven and fairly quickly garnered international recognition.
In his own design studio he produced designs for furniture, products, interiors and exhibitions.
Hutten is a conceptual designer but his designs are highly functional, each and every one of them. Often the object will even have multiple functions.
Design Museum Gent gives Hutten the assignment to give shape to the exhibition himself. The result will certainly show this, and will be telling of the convincing and typical style of Hutten.
