Studio Frederik Roijé is very pleased to be asked for, and to accomplish different special design projects. The projects vary from commissioned work for labels, to unique pieces like trophy designs or statues. The special projects always start with an exploratory meeting, to get to know our clients and their requirements and demands. During the design process the client stays closely involved and is kept up to date, to make sure the final result is meeting all expectations.

Products - Mason, Tub
Mason, a wall element and bookshelf in one.
Mason is based on the measurements of bricks that are used for typical Dutch houses. By its simple appearance it can be used as a single wall element, or combined - like bricklaying, to build a wall covering composition. It's designed to fit water or wine bottles, magazines, books and accessories.
Tub, a side table to move around.
A bucket is a well-known tool. The distinctive shape of this ancient instrument is translated into a functional and stylish side table that is easy to move around because of its handle – just like a bucket. Tub is manufactured from coated steel and is finished with inlays of ash wood or cork. The two layers offer extra space to present accessories or to serve your drinks. A perfect addition next to the sofa or lounge chair.

The design is totally inspired by the beauty of nature and its unique shapes. The wall lamp shape brings to mind a group of soft mushrooms spreading light that gently illuminate every space in an exceptional way. The technique of 3D printing, which allows designers to create shapes impossible to be thought, has made possible the realization of details never seen before, such as small pleats reminiscent of the hyphae of mushrooms. But this is only one of the several interpretations that people can give to this design piece. The form also reminds a cloud, or even a jellyfish.
Fluid and welcoming, Lightnest is a celebration of the nature elements; it attracts for the evocative design and for the warm atmosphere that it creates.
