Sebastiaan Van beest

Born and raised in the Netherlands, Sebastiaan always had a love for sound and design. Winning competitions at a young age for things such as the new Euro money at the age of 14. He spent most of his youth as a graffiti artist running from the authorities. At the age 18 he started to transfer his skills to canvas. Mostly for himself and friends. He never pursued and exhibition nor did he think he was ready, yet. At the age of 20, he moved to Vancouver, Canada, where he had to work for a living. He started producing electronic music as a hobby and performing around the world. He has had many releases on different iconic record labels over the years. He took a step back from music to focus more on work. Creating and designing took a back seat for about 5 years. Just recently he found new inspiration once again to create. He started painting again and making music. Built a workshop to build his furniture and sculptures. He believes now is the time to fully follow his life long dream of being a full time designer. His designs are minimal with focus on the use of negative space to make an impact. He has a strong belief that less is more and that the loudest notes are the ones that aren't played. This translates well into his furniture. Every design is meticulously minimal yet has a very strong presence. Use space without taking up space is his motto.
