Linde Hermans

In 1997 Linde obtained her Master’s Degree in Product Design with magna cum laude. After internships at Li Edelkoort in Paris, Jorge Pensi Diseno in Barcelona and the studio of Piet Stockmans she lectured at the Eindhoven Design Academy, designed street furniture, restyled the Tongeren prison and started her own label ‘Rode Schoentjes’. In 2008 she was presented with the Henry Van de Velde Award for Young Talent. In her work Linde makes use of recognisable symbols and stories – often with a twist – in an attempt to provide the user with a legible end result.
