Welcome at MATERIANS.
Rian Smolenaers (1991) graduated in Interieur and Exterior Design at SintLucas, Boxtel and Man and Communication at Design Academy, Eindhoven.
It is in Rian her nature to experiment, with colours, materials and textures. She takes inspiration from the colour palettes around her: from nature to architecture, the people she meets, and the places where she works out.
Rian believes that tactility and colour are key to bridge the gap between humans and technology. Her passion is to create innovative, smart materials for spaces and apparel, but most important: to find new tactility in this world where technology development is growing faster than ever.
