I am Timon de Koning, a 29 year old, Rotterdam based Industrial Product Designer and Maker of Things (especially with wood and steel). I was born in Chiang Mai, Thailand and was adopted at the age of 3. Since then I grew up around Rotterdam. From a young age I loved working with my hands. Finding a creative way of expressing myself by creating things.
During my Industrial Product Design study, I figured out I could make a living from my hobby. That’s how I decided to start a woodworking study at HMC in Rotterdam, during the time I quit Industrial Product Design (for a few years). While studying at HMC I discovered a lot of things about myself. Especially that learning from books is not for me. So I decided to do it on my own and started my own business in making things.
Through the years, I learned that my passion lies with designing and creating. This drove my decision to resume my bachelor in Industrial Product Design, that I am finalising within a year. I am combining studying with managing my own business, and am working hard to turn my passion into a career.
Nowadays I build everything with steel and wood. Also I’m able to visualize your design in 3D, which offers a good representation of the final product.
