Bertjan Pot is a designer, probably best known for his Random Light (1999). The light started as a material research, which is basically the starting point of each product created by Bertjan Pot. The outcome is usually an interior product showing a fascination for techniques, structures, patterns and colors. Most experiments start quite impulsively by a certain curiosity for how things would function or how something would look. 

Born in Nieuwleusen, Holland, Bertjan Pot went on to study at the Design Academy Eindhoven. After graduating in 1998 Pot founded his own design studio. Pot focuses on the material and technique and then the most beneficial way to implement it into design of interiors. 

From there Bertjan takes on challenges with manufacturers to explore possibilities and push the boundaries a bit. The reward for each challenge is a new one. Studio Bertjan Pot works with manufacturers such as Arco, Established & Sons, Feld, Gelderland, Montis, Moooi and Richard Lampert.

If you try to be funny in conversation it can go everywhere where if you try to be serious you end up going down one path.
