Edward van Vliet | Creating Worlds

Edward van Vliet is an exponent of the current generation of contemporary Dutch designers that has claimed the international limelight for the past decade. His work is characterized by the high level of attention given to every aspect of an interior; from furniture to lighting, from lobby to staircase and from floor to ceiling; everything is subject to a ‘total experience’. Creating Worlds is a compendium that takes you along on a journey throughout the myriad of facets and influences that define Edward’s work, ranging from product design to hospitality and residential concepts, from east to west and from the smallest detail to ‘the big picture’.
May it inspire and enrich you.

“Edward has the eyes of a photographer, the sensibility of a musician and the power of an architect”
- Patrizia Moroso
“At times like this marked by various types of contrasts, the work of the Dutch designer Edward van Vliet shows how a dialogue among populations and different cultures is not only possible, but indispensable. Because a diversity is never a handicap, but always a plus point.”
- Fabio Destefani

Design Philosophy

As a cosmopolitan designer, Edward van Vliet is inspired by the world around him. Fascinated by a never depleting source of cultural and natural varieties he aims to compose new worlds by making unique combinations of colours, materials, patterns and shapes.
Whilst respecting any given local context, these “new worlds” are always at the heart of his company’s designs and concepts. In creating these worlds, nine specific design keys are employed. The harmony between them ensures remarkable results.
“Designing is traveling between dreams and reality”
- Edward van Vliet
