Jurgen Bey, born in Soest in the Netherlands in 1965, is an iconic Dutch designer, recognised for his work for the Droog collection, including the Tree Trunk Bench. A graduate of the Design Academy Eindhoven, Bey has continually run design studios, independently and in collaboration with others, producing furniture, products, interiors and public space design. He is driven to understand the world and question it in a unique manner â€“ he believes that creating something new is a bizarre concept, as every solution we could imagine is already in existence in the world around us. Instead, Bey looks for these existing solutions, and transforms them into something people want to use. He has collaborated with a wide range of companies and other creatives, including Droog, Moooi, Royal Tichelaar Makkum, and PROOFF, and has been awarded numerous prestigious titles for his ingenious and unique designs.
