Born in Nieuwleusen, the Netherlands, in 1975, Dutch designer Bertjan Pot uses his infatuation with textures and skins to create furniture and lighting for famed manufacturers like Montis and Moooi. After learning to weave and knit while studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven—which has also produced designers like Dror Behshetrit, Tord Boontje, Marcel Wanders, and Piet Hein Eek—Pot transformed his interests into now-iconic fixtures like the Random Light, Random Chair, Carbon Chair with Marcel Wanders, Non-Random Chair, and Lazy Bastard Chair. He continues to live and work in the Netherlands.
