Johan van Hengel (1981) was trained as an industrial designer in The Hague. During his years at Feiz Design Studio, he developed an interest in furniture, lighting and accessory design. Tor, a convenient side table he designed for Montis (a collaboration with Ralf Lamble), earned him a Talent Award. His designs have been commissioned by various Dutch and Scandinavian design companies. Van Hengel has an eye for distinctive details that elevate everyday consumer objects and furniture pieces.
