Studio Elmo Vermijs works on the interface between visual art, design and architecture.


Studio Elmo Vermijs is engaged in:

a) commissions
b) self-initiated projects
c) teaching, workshops and lectures

The projects vary in scale from landscape to products. In both the design/developing phase and the realization the studio works in multidisciplinary teams.

The work of Studio Elmo Vermijs has been (inter)nationally highlighted in various media, won the Vredeman de Vriesprijs for design and is nominated for the DOEN Materiaalprijs and generously supported by Stimuleringsfonds, Mondriaanfonds, AFK en Stichting DOEN.


Studio Elmo Vermijs works on social and future issues which influence today's society. Through research and design, spatial and visual answers are formulated. The social interaction and the subsequent process between different (mainly local) parties are the starting point for this. In addition, it is important that the viewer(s) take part in the final work, either because they are asked by the process, or because they are expected to participate actively.
The Studio has a dedicated attitude toward design, applies innovative methods and creates with a long-term vision. As a result, the Studio knows how to start another kind of creative process, not only a clear-looking image language, but also the context of a larger comprehensive development.
