About


Chris Kabel combines a fascination for materials and natural phenomena with a sensitive and analytical approach to design objects, furniture and architectural elements.

Sensitivity to context and finding relevant design answers prevail trends: “I like to be smart more than stylish”. One way or another, aesthetics always follow suit in an intuitive and poetic way.

Chris Kabel (1975) graduated in 2001 from the Design Academy Eindhoven. He lives and works in Rotterdam.
