PLANKSTAAL was conceived by Mira Nasruddin. She completed her studies in Spatial Design at Utrecht Institute of the Arts in the summer of 2017. For her graduation project, Mira strived to create more than a product. She wanted to create a stage for the builders behind the product; a stage that is omitted all too often.This graduation project, PLANKSTAAL, marks Mira’s debut as a product designer. PLANKSTAAL believes that everyone has their place in society. PLANKSTAAL furniture has been made with great love and care by people who do not have access to the job market. This is how PLANKSTAAL creates furniture that matters. Because its creators matter.
