Marit van Heumen, born in ’s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands (1991), is graduated at the jewelry department of the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design. However, she cannot be described as a traditional jewelry maker. In her work, she focusses on exploring the relationship between the human body, products, and the spaces surrounding us.
Marit has a background in different disciplines of design. Influences of these disciplines - product, fashion and architecture - come together in her work as the human body plays a significant role in all of these disciplines. By looking at the connection between body and product so broadly, she has extended her view on the wearable product. With this view she wants to extend the boundaries of wearable goods.
