Eric Janssen


American designer Eric Janssen (b. 1964) has been designing products and furniture from his studio in New York City since 1997. His work exhibits a keen interest in materials and production processes, as well as a simple, archetypal approach to form. Materials themselves sometimes play a communicative role in his designs and a subtle wit is often present. His sculptural and iconic designs are a contemporary interpretation of classic modern design.

Janssen has designed products for The Museum of Modern Art, Areaware, Merlo-T and Kikkerland, among others. His designs have appeared in numerous exhibitions, trade fairs and publications worldwide.

Totem Votive Set

Turn off the TV. Put the kettle on. Grab a good book, wrap yourself in a warm blanket, dim the overhead and illuminate the room with these birch wood Totems. The MoMA Store exclusive set was designed by Eric Janssen from his New York studio, and while each unique piece holds a tea light, they'll look just as nice when displayed unlit.

Voila Trivet

The Voila Trivet by Eric Janssen for Merlo is a take off of a gas stovetop pattern and will ensure that oven to table doesn't result in scorched surfaces. We like the durable material used can take the heat most any kitchen doles out, up to 450 degrees.
