about studio guilty

Tijs Gilde is a design studio based in The Netherlands founded by Tijs Gilde (1990)

who started studying design at Sint Lucas in Boxtel and later went to the Design Academy Eindhoven. He enjoyed multiple internships, the last of them was IKEA of Sweden where he worked in the design/strategy department. The studio was founded during his graduation from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2015.


Tijs works on a variety of commissioned projects and self initiated projects for both domestic and public interiors, product design and photography.


Tijs’s work starts from an intuitive level, colour, shape and material are at the base of the process. Often in combination with experimental photography Tijs searches for new approaches to shape and function.


“This way of creating images leads to unexpected things, things the brain doesn’t produce working towards a specific goal”


Keeping one eye on trends and todays needs, these two processes come together in functional end products. Tijs’s work is characterized by flexible qualities and bright colors on bold shapes which give his projects a young and naive personality.
