Making people feel at home

  • • Nicole and Ivo make hand-sewn wool felt plants
  • • Every unique object is handmade by the duo and their small team
  • • They like to mentor young designers and train students

The duo Nicole Driessens and Ivo van den Baar of Wandschappen have been working together since 1999. They were both trained in the arts: Ivo at the Royal Academy for Art and Design in Hertogenbosch and Nicole at the Academy for Visual Arts in Tilburg. Sculpting with textiles has been part of their artistic practice since 2009, when they were invited to stage a solo show in the Hommes gallery in Rotterdam, and decided to design nine black felt plant sculptures behind the gallery’s nine windows, to make a visual connection between the inside and the outside of the gallery. Today their felt plant sculptures attract customers from each corner of the world.
