BUYINK Pleunie


Pleunie Buyink  (*1988, The Netherlands) graduated at the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands after she graduated at Artemis Rotterdam as a fashion designer.

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.

Refracting off of natural emulations and geometric cuts, Pleunie Buyink’s flexible Limber Gems extend light from all angles.
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.
Pleunie Buyink manages the whole process giving her the opportunity to make the objects in almost every size and colour.

Due to her rich and personal work, she has been praised and well received not only in her home country, The Netherlands but also abroad.
