“Being passionately curious about almost everything I create opportunities by connecting people and businesses and, by creating products that tell a story.“
Wisse Trooster (1988) is a passionately curious designer from The Netherlands. Trooster works with a variety of materials and in multiple disciplines. He presented his Hands of Time clock, with a clock face made from a worn sanding disc from Design Academy Eindhoven, at gallery Rosanna Orlandi in 2017 and is amongst the Best of Year honourees of 2018 with his sustainable cardboard 900 LED pendant.
Trooster started his design studio during his study of Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology. Inspired by the production techniques he encountered, he made his first products with an industrial touch. Nowadays, in addition to designing interior products, Trooster participates in international light festivals with his fairytale-like light installation Lucciole. An installation that creates the illusion of millions of fireflies floating through the trees.
While exploring the Dutch design work field, Trooster started his online Dutch Design collection at @wisse_design. A collection that keeps himself and others up to date on the developments within the industry, and is promoting Dutch design at the same time.
