From early on Robrecht has been interested in creating. At High School he studied study Art and Architecture, continuing the search for his passion. When he decided to study Industrial Product design he came in contact with all the different aspects of Product Design.
Later on he went to New York City with great motivation to grow as a designer. During his stay he worked at Atlason, a multidisciplinary design studio in Manhattan. There he acquired an understanding in the relationship between objects and people in order to create valuable products.
Kasper has always been fascinated by objects surrounding him. His approach is characterised by intuition, combined with industrial knowledge and an esteem for pure and tactile materials.
Whilst still a student Kasper has had the opportunity to work at Doshi Levien, an internationally acclaimed design studio based in London. This experience helped him to sharpen his feeling for textures, proportions, colours and materials.
