Ilse Meulendijks founded Studio Juxta in 2017. The studio independently performs research, initiates design projects and develops commissioned work. Based both in Greece and the Netherlands, Studio Juxta’s design practice shows just what the name implies: a balanced juxtapositioning of seemingly contrasting elements.

“Contrast doesn’t mean conflict; it’s my playground, it’s where I find awareness. So I combine a firm yet flexible research foundation with a more intuitive and tactile approach. My analytical way of working never loses sight of the subtle elements of perception and association. And I translate a solid knowledge of materials and techniques into results that feel instinctive and emphatic. It comes natural, I wouldn’t know how to do it any other way”.

Studio Juxta’s interests and expertise aren’t confined to a specific area of design (specialization). Current projects include; research into social and financial structures of craftsmen in Athens; Book for Sale which offers a new approach to bookmaking for artists and creatives; and the ways in which graphic design can not only create a brand identity for commercial purposes, but rather reflect the persons behind it.
