Recently two new engineers joined our team. Both with quite a different background, Jord Stijsiger and Tom Sweep enjoy creating the technical concept for new products. At our studio they found a challenging environment, closely cooperating with our product designers from the very first ideas to final design for our international clients.
Jord studied Product Design in Rotterdam and did his master study in Antwerp, Belgium. He gained a lot of experience working as a mechanical engineer but missed the creative and ergonomic aspects of design. The development process from wild ideas into a realistic design fascinates him. Jord: “It feels great being part of the enthusiastic, passionate, and creative team at FLEX.” When not at our studio, he loves photography and scouring unique vintage items on flea markets with his girlfriend.
Tom fancies timeless design, that shows a perfect balance in shape and functionality and closely follows developments in sustainable design. He has quite some experience in product development and production techniques. He loves the engineering part of designing, combining technology and creativity, with a focus on functionality, choice of materials, assembling and producing products. ‘It’s a great privilege to be part of a team with that much experience and enthusiasm’ according to Tom. His next biggest passion: riding the waves!
It’s great to have you at our studio guys, good luck!
