Joeny Veldhuyzen van Zanten (1978) studied Art History at the University of Amsterdam till 2006 and then moved to Florence where she specialized in sculpture at Florence Academy of Art. In 2008 she went on to complete a BFA in ceramics at Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Joeny is currently based in Amsterdam where she works on her own designs and occasionally teaches the Material Process class at Gerrit Rietveld Academy.
As a designer and sculptor, all of Joenys work lies in the in-between. In every thing we make or do we take things for granted and become blind for alternatives. Searching out these blind spots and sharing the beauty found is her motivation to make.
The lamp Cubo that she is showing during OBJECT Rotterdam 2019 is now part of the collection of Linteloo.
