Iris graduated at the Design Academy Eindhoven in June 2010 in the department ‘Man and Identity’.
She creates new materials, accessories and jewelry in a fresh, graphic and stylistic way.
Her work has something epic, ethnic and nostalgic, translated in nowadays aesthetics.
She loves to create wonder and alienation, ‘the world can not be strange-aesthetic enough’.
Together with Ruben Thier, launched their Studio Thier&VanDaalen. Take a look at the website www.thiervandaalen.com.
“We like to experiment with different techniques and materials, colours and shapes.
Relying on our intuition, we create new products and concepts.”
