We are Studio HENK, a Dutch furniture design studio based in Amsterdam. Inspired by daily moments we design furniture for everyday life.
About Studio HENK
Studio HENK was founded in 2013 by two brothers from the Netherlands - architect Xander and business strategist Okke. Their quest for beautiful yet practical furniture led to the founding of Studio HENK. “Me and my wife (brand strategist Corine) had been searching for design pieces that were both beautiful and practical for a while”, says Okke. “We wanted furniture that we could use every day without having to worry about actually using it.” Okke and his brother Xander, who was working as an architect at the time, decided to make their own dining table. Slowly, Studio HENK was born.
At Studio HENK we believe that furniture design isn’t just about creating a beautiful piece; it’s about designing furniture for everyday life. Therefore, we make furniture pieces that are both aesthetic and functional. All pieces from the collection can be customised. That way, you can create a piece that is exactly what you need to enjoy your day to day life - whether at home or at work. Our collection consists of all the types of furniture you need for your living and dining space, office or restaurant.
Our mission is to create well-made furniture that will last a lifetime. To ensure the durability of our furniture, we only work with high-quality materials. The subtle details reflect the craftsmanship and the attention to detail with which the pieces are made. All furniture is made in Europe.
