Pleunie Buyink graduated at the Design Academy Eindhoven in June 2014.
Before she graduated at Artemis Rotterdam as a fashion designer. The love for fashion- interior and materials is something that is always noticed in her work, creating new materials and combining different techniques. For her graduation project at the Design Academy she developed a newly composition material, combining different layers and materials were rubber is one component. The composition material is called Limber Gems. Pleunie is creating elegant interior jewellery with this new material. Once the light touches a Limber Gem the interplay between the rugged crinkly background, the ruff edges and the warm colours really starts. Limber Gems are behaving as chameleons playing with incoming light, reflection and colour in every interior. She manages the whole process giving her the opportunity to make the objects in almost every size and colour. Her work has already been showed at the Dutch Design week, Salone del Mobile Milan and exhibitions of Lidewij Edelkoort in Germany and Istanbul. She also showed her work in Copenhagen during Northmodern fair and sells her work internationally in different galaries.
