Joug design is a family business run by husband and wife team, Jelle Nijdam and Helen Stipkovits.
We are lucky to live in the beautiful country of Aotearoa. Our studio is based on Wellington's south coast overlooking the Cook Strait; on a clear day we can see as far as the snow capped Kaikoura ranges on the South Island. Looking at the complex and beautiful shapes in our natural environment; in our native forests; along our coasts and in the sea influences our designs. We are particularly drawn to the golden proportions and mathematical equations found within our native flora and fauna. Our natural environment gives us so much to be thankful for; therefore we do our best to leave a small as possible footprint behind. The materials we choose to work with all have a low carbon footprint as they are sourced from around Australasia. The plastic we use contains a 30% - 40% recycled component and we design specifically to minimize waste, however any waste product that is created is sent to a plastic recycle company.
