Technology and innovation
Frans Schrofer (born in 1956) lives and works in The Hague. His motto: to create ‘tools for living’. Schrofer looks for unexpected shapes and uses unconventional methods to create them. His Studio Schrofer designs indoor furniture, as well as garden furniture, fireplaces and lighting. Schrofer already received several design awards.
Schrofer comes from a family that has been focussing on creativity and art for generations. His love of racing motivated him to follow a technical/mechanical course, and in 1983 he completed his training at the Design Academy in Eindhoven. Since the late 1980s, he developed furnishing for a number of brands, including Leolux. Technology and innovation often underpin his designs.
