Hans Daalder’s work features a clean-design aesthetic that masterfully balances the adventurous with the functional. He has honed his skills designing for renowned furniture brands since his graduation from the Design Academy in Eindhoven (1989). His uncompromising focus on the quality of his creations has earned them a special place in clients’ hearts.
“Finding the right balance of design features, colour, and texture is a process that involves knowing when to stop. Stripping an idea down to its essential parts, without sacrificing the richness of the experience is the most demanding part of my work. You can compare it to serving an excellent steak. In a good restaurant a choice piece, cooked to perfection, is served without a sauce. In the same way, a good design does not require elaboration. Together with my colleagues I pare an idea down until its core is revealed. It is finished when we can’t help but feel it’s right. That we’d put this new chair or table in our own home or garden.
The team at Oasiq share my ideas and commitment when it comes to delivering quality in design and use of materials. The aluminium Corail collection expresses a colourful sense of fun as well as a robust practicality. While the Diuna sets a new standard for elegant outdoor teak furniture in a quiet, understated way.”
