We create innovations for both multinationals and clever start-up companies. By focussing on the user perspective and trying to find the question behind the question we are able to get through to the core of the problem. We aim for solutions with a high functional quality, the optimal use of materials, and focus on sustainability in development.
npk design’s management team is made up of the three partners, Jos Oberdorf, Janwillem Bouwknegt and Herman van der Vegt. All three have extensive experience in their individual areas of expertise. When you decide to work with us, you always have direct access to one of the partners. They are responsible for closely integrating innovation and business insight.
Interdisciplinary consultation and collaboration with the relevant scientific organisations or suppliers guarantee the best practices and ideas for your projects. The partners are always personally involved in projects and are available for project consultation and review.
As a part-time Professor of Product Architecture Design at Delft Technical University and a partner at npk design, Jos combines design strategy and balanced design concepts with the latest theoretical insights.
