Wieki Somers and Bertjan Pot live round the corner from each other on the leafy outskirts of Rotterdam. Fellow graduates of Design Academy Eindhoven, they like to bounce ideas off each other and share lunch every now and then. They work intuitively, favouring trial and error over sterile conceptualism.
