geke Lensink

After graduating from ArtEZ University of the Arts Geke Lensink (1963) soon established her name as an independent designer in Amsterdam. She has worked across a wide range of disciplines, and her clients include some prestigious brands spanning diverse sectors from exhibition design to industrial design To this day Geke has ongoing relationships with companies such as Cor Unum and Brothers and Sons. Her travels to non-western countries and cultures such as Kenya, Canada, Morocco, Turkey fueled her critical attitude towards arrogant western supremacy and inspired her to create objects that testify to a world in which different value systems and mutual recognition coexist and reinforce each other. 

Although she still works on commission, twelve years ago Geke expanded her professional practice with a more personal and narrative approach blurring the line between art and design.

‘Each rug, each vase I make tells a story based on a personal memory or emotion, made tangible through a combination of my western background as a designer, my position as a human being and collaborative forms of design with people from different cultures.’
