Ivo Hulskamp (1980) is a product designer and artist. He combines conceptual thinking with advanced productions skills developing conceptual lighting installations, design objects and industrial products.
He successfully finished a degree in mechanical engineering, a bachelor in Product Design at the University of the Arts Utrecht (HKU) and a Master Public Space Design at the MAHKU. He now lives and works in Eindhoven from his own studio at Strijp-S.
He enrolled for a course in mechanical engineering in order to be “able to make anything” and after completion he found a job as a machine builder. He quickly found that the industrial environment was conceptually not satisfying and wanted to make more autonomous work.
In his current work he loves to work with light and makes lamps or light installations. He uses physics and mathematics to solve design problems.
