Peter Donders (born 1965) worked for fifteen years as a craft-furniture designer and maker before beginning to integrate computer-based tools into his work. Now he combines his background as a craftsman with his expansive technological knowledge — the computer is now fully part of his production process. For every object Donders makes, he pushes the borders of existing technology and techniques. Besides his work with carbon fiber, he loves to explore the possibilities of 3D printing. Due to his fascination with the leading Belgian Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta, Donders' creations feature organic lines and serene shapes, which maintain nonetheless an interesting and exiting aesthetic harmony.
