Sofia Chin grew up in a small village in the east of the Netherlands. She studied Interiorarchitecture and Furniture Design at the Royal Academy of Art and continued her way at the Willem de Kooning Academy, graduating as a Product Designer in 2018.

Often she’s inspired by moments of wonder. By contemplating on them she gives them shape through designing objects. Controlled experiments are accompanied with meaningful coincidences.

Fascinated by materials, machines and historical production techniques, she’s stretching its abilities and give them a new meaning. This shines through in her final products.
