Fabio Damiani and Marco Quistini created studioPANG in October 2012, with the common idea that by combining different skills and passions, the project approach is enriched with new issues and perspectives. Design, architecture and communication are places of comparison before becoming a projectual theme. After few months, they got awarded at various competitions of design, architecture and graphic. StudioPANG is an open laboratory of constant research and development of ideas and projects: an open and dynamic environment that involves different experiences to create a professional multi-faceted reality.
"Comprehend with all senses" is the philosophy of the German designer Ewald Winkelbauer's work. This shows amongst others in pens, household aids, lamps and urban furniture for renowned companies. He won plenty of national and international design awards and is shown in the MIK museum in Ludwigsburg. Probably not a hand which hasn't held his redesign of the Stabilo Boss Textmarker. His passion for designing clocks began when he was still a student. Not to capture time with numbers is his ambition, rather providing space for time.
London based Dutch designer Chantal Drenthe gets her inspiration from daily routine. Combined with her background in industrial design, she enjoys the creation of functional and aesthetic everyday products. Objects from her hand can be recognised by the play on form, words or life. It is the kind of items that make you question the normal and put a smile on your face.

Jan des Bouvrie is a Dutch interior architect and product designer. He tapped out an unmistakable path to modern living, both in The Netherlands and abroad. The heart of all his work is based on symmetry, clear clean design and his wish to reduce things to the simplest form; “Never forget the essential”.
Original Dutch design with an international touch. That is the best way to describe the designs of Deal Design. They are based in the Netherlands and try to make items that people will instantly notice. Their goal is to always add something innovative or fun in their designs. Working with NeXtime is something they have always looked forward to. Time is an important aspect of everyday life. Being able to design time-related items that people use daily and that they will enjoy looking at them, has therefore, a very special place in Deal Design's heart.
