LEFF amsterdam’s in-house designer Erwin Termaat creates interpretable and unobtrusive products, often inspired by industrial aesthetics from earlier times. With his background in industrial design, his designs fuse creativity and technology, using the best of both worlds.
–“As a design engineer I try to achieve distinctiveness through details and subtleties. I prefer using form and concept as starting points, rather than function and materials. Often this asks for clever solutions which, sometimes unexpectedly, contribute to the final product.
Over the years I acquired many skills that are key for product design, such as project management, 3D CAD drawing, product visualisation, graphic design and packaging design. As a versatile designer I create objects together with their contexts”–
