Jos Klarenbeek

Jos Klarenbeek is an independent designer and researcher whose work explores the intersection of mathematics, science and design. Both through personal projects and commissioned work, his approach brings the precision of a mathematical mind together with a focus on materials and craftsmanship, resulting in designs that convey intricate stories and complex narratives rooted in data.

Jos embraces an interdisciplinary approach, seeking to connect various fields and offer a fresh perspective on data visualisation. In recent years, his work has prominently featured textiles and weaving, in which woven textiles are viewed as binary matrices composed of ones and zeros.

With degrees in both mathematics and design, from the University of Amsterdam and the Design Academy Eindhoven respectively, Jos work builds on a strong foundation. His skills in programming, 3D modelling, technical weaving, and product development all further inform his practice as does his work as an educator: Jos teaches technical jacquard weaving at the Royal Academy of the Arts in The Hague. Recognised with several awards, including the Dutch Design Award among others, Jos’s independent research has also found its place in museums and publications. Notable exhibitions and projects include Hack the Heritage, Solid Flow, Kadans 2.0, and Fibres Unsorted at Salone del Mobile.
