Ilias Ernst

“Combining functionality with design, that’s what I love”

Our top designer is Ilias Ernst alias Ernst Koning, a Dutch designer. We have known him for a long time from our high school period. He has a very good reputation in the Netherlands and is well-known in the world of design with his own label Ilias Ernst. In addition to this label, he also works for various companies such as Gispen, Lande, Puikart, Hollands Licht and Cartoni Design and for us: Spinwood.

His inspiration comes from everyday things that he translates into functional and well-designed products. He uses his creativity to surprise. Ilias likes to stimulate the curiosity of the user by giving his objects and designs multiple functionalities. Precisely this twist fits in perfectly with Spinwood’ s vision and wishes to create multifunctional design furniture.

On his website you will find more information about him and examples of his work.
