Designer Martijn Stelt is head of the family. With a lot of attention for proportion, materials and the finishing touch, he applies his craftsmanship to life-size animals. With blankets made of purely natural wool, he forms a new kind of fur again. Martijn makes all Dekendieren by hand. With great eye for detail. Colour, pattern and direction of the diamond shape … everything must be just right.
Martijn Stelt is an experienced and very enthusiastic craftsman with a passion for dazzling and daring design. With Dekendieren he applies a conventional technique to unconventional objects. In this way, the blankets made of purely natural wool form a fur again and really come to life. The result: a sleek, modern design with a playful shape and a nostalgic look.
While studying Interior Architecture & Urban Design at the Utrecht School of the Arts, Martijn worked for a traditional furniture upholsterer in ‘s-Hertogenbosch. He then further refined his craftsmanship with the well-known furniture and product designer Piet Hein Eek. In 2012 it was time for a private upholstery: Studio Stelt. In addition to covering furniture, he also looked for other options for transforming objects through upholstery. With Dekendieren he is going on a new adventure.
