Simone Post is a Dutch textile and product designer. She graduated with honours from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2015 and since then her work has received numerous accolades and been distinguished with several international awards and nominations including ‘Domotex Best Studio Artist Design’, ‘Dutch Design Award Product’. Her work is characterized by material experiments, in-depth research and a love for colour, print and crafts. She strives for her designs to be sustainable, either in terms of material use or with reference to cultural heritage like traditions, storytelling, clothing and traditional skills and technologies.
In addition to running her own design practice, Simone has been one of the initiators of Envisions in 2016. Seeking cooperation with a variety of industries, she has specialised in spotting new innovative possibilities. As an outsider, she can bring a completely new view and concept to existing companies. To Simone, the finished product is not necessarily the most interesting aspect of the design process, but she has a penchant for the research process itself, the potential of materials and techniques, the unexpected outcomes of experiments and the beauty of semi-finished products, making designing into an infinitely intriguing process and business.
Simone is collaborating with companies like Adidas, Kvadrat, Vlisco, Hema, Return to Sender, Eco-oh! and Finsa. Her works have been acquired by several museums including the Utrecht Centraal Museum, Vitra Design Museum and Museum für Völkerkunde Hamburg.
