Floris Hovers

“Honesty and clarity” are the guiding principles for Floris Hovers, winner of the prestigious Sanoma award. By this Hovers means bringing a depth of understanding to materials and construction. He comes by this ethos naturally: his grandfather operated a concrete factory. After graduating from Design Academy Eindhoven and working for designer Piet Hein Eek, Hovers opened his own studio in his grandfather's former factory.
