In 2010 Steven Banken graduates Cum Laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven. Shortly after he starts his studio where design and craftsmanship meet on the factory side of designer Piet Hein Eek.
The projects are based on a research in origin and material. This approach results in a clear design with an eye for innovation, construction and finish. The products and furniture are produced in his own studio.
Banken is fascinated by the material wood, craftmanship and its history. His great appreciation for industrial and artisanal techniques is visible in construction and detail.
