Bertjan Pot was born 1975 in Nieuwleusen, the Netherlands (a small town in the east of the country). Now, he lives in Rotterdam. He graduated from Man and Identity at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 1998. He likes to work on various projects. Bert Jan: "Sometime I initiate a project myself because I like it so much that I think it just has to be made. Sometimes I am commissioned to do a project because other people like my work and think I am the one to do the job. My main fascination is material and production processes Everything is made out of material and in my opinion materializing is an inevitable but often forgotten part of the design process.

In design I like a flirt with computer esthetics and industrial production methods, but without using a computer (at least not as a design tool) and sometimes also without the industrial production method. Almost all designs come from experiments in materials, old and new. The way a product feels is just as important as the way it looks.

Only recently I was reflecting on my work and I found out that a lot of projects could be described as structural and non structural skins (thank you Ed van Hinte!). As in the Knitted lamp where I froze a soft textile around a cluster of balloons and where the resin drained textile becomes the hard structure. It is similar to the Carbon Chair, the Random Light and the Random Chair (MOOOI) where a skin becomes a product. Also in the Old Fruits, Tops and Bottoms where a dried skin of a squash becomes the actual structure of a product one could speak of a structural skin.
