Portret Fransje Gimbrere


Fransje Gimbrère is a multidisciplinary designer, born and raised in Tilburg, the textile city of The Netherlands,
and graduated in 2017 from the Man & Identity department at the Design Academy in Eindhoven.

She observes and explores the world with profound critical thinking and an intuitive interest for the aesthetics of shape, color, image and material. This ability to monitor draws her into questioning the world as it is.

With her awareness of aesthetic quality, use of a variety of materials and a variety of mediums, Fransje has produced a multidisciplinary range of work.

Her concepts and designs often contain contradictory elements and a new playfull approach, resulting in a little idiosyncrasy or raw edge in every one of them.
