"…for creating is an expression of the human spirit in action."
Philip Koomen established his workshop in 1975 and employs a team of five craftsmen, including an apprentice. His work evolves from themes which may be based on traditional furniture or sculptural forms, but it is always designed to be appropriate to the client’s lifestyle and practical needs. Although his furniture covers a wide price range, he aims to produce classic pieces that will become heirlooms for future generations. Above all, his work reflects his own deeply held spiritual beliefs and is made with passion and faith in the future.
