Waarmakers is a design studio, founded by Simon Akkaya and Maarten Heijltjes, who met and developed their ideas on design while studying Industrial Design at the Technical University Delft.

We’re a small studio with a broad network of partners, enabling us to quickly adapt and fit the expertise to a project. Working in small teams we create products in the physical and digital realm - from brand identities to packaging and from apps to tangible products. 


Our designs are manifestations of a belief that everything can be reimagined and redesigned for a more sustainable future. Each new design should be a test of convention, and a step in a better direction.

We're curious and critical people, we search for different approaches, new combinations and new standards. We experiment, we test, we discuss, we criticise. And, we try to create narratives that suggest and imply far more than a physical form.
