Approach

With a minimalistic design approach, Ruiter strips products down to their essence which is where they begin taking shape. He reimagines ordinary things using common themes and creates designs that activate a familiar yet surprising space in us. His disruptive perspective leads to builds that are unconventional, beautiful and anything but ordinary.
