Simone Post (b. 1990, the Netherlands) is a Dutch textile and product designer based in Rotterdam. She graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2015 with honors (CUM LAUDE) and has won several international awards and nominations including ‘Domotex Best Studio Artist Design’, ’Dutch Design Award Best Product & Best Young Designer’, ‘Dezeen Awards, best emerging design studio’ and the ‘Biannual Design Prize by the Noord-brabant Cultuurfonds’ . Her independent design studio is built on the principles of experimental research, sustainability, and cultural heritage. Post’s work is characterized by bold material and pattern experiments that enlist traditional techniques and technologies. To Simone, the finished product is not necessarily the most interesting aspect of the design process, but she has a penchant for the research process itself, the potential of materials and techniques. This always results in unexpected outcomes enritching the possibilities of craftsmen and manufactures.
Her work has been acquired by museums including the Vitra Design Museum, the Centraal Museum Utrecht, and Cooper Hewitt New York and has been exhibited worldwide. She has been collaborating successfully with renowned companies like Adidas, Kvadrat/Maharam, Textielmuseum, Cor Unum, Vlisco, Hema, Return to Sender, Eco-oh! and Finsa.
