Floris Hovers was born in 1976 Raamsdonksveer. After a basic engineering training and advertising and presentation techniques in Utrecht, he studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
In 2004 he graduated in the direction of the studio projects ‘Fixed’ and ‘suggesting tin’.
After graduating he worked for two years at Piet Hein Eek then to start in 2006 his own design studio.
A basic and simple approach to techniques and materials are essential for Hovers to communicate his vision and working method. The read of a product he calls that.
They are often simple and easy-industrial forms and structures that appeal to him while he may be moved by the small, naive of toys and with handmade things together.
These extremes are a constant throughout his work he described as "industrial handcrafts".
It is a quest to what was and is, between work and play, between man and machine.
In all this he cherishes love for simplicity and clarity.
Floris Hovers also teaches at the AKV St. Joost - school of fine art and design- in the direction of spatial design.
