About


I have a fascination for technology, materials & craftsmanship. Having studied mechanical engineering and product design I combine the two expertises.

With my work I want to motivate positive change towards a sustainable future, designing easy to use, (conceptual) products that are future proof. The environmentcraftsmanship and the human being are key to my work.

By dissecting production and design processes, I gain essential knowledge about the use of materials and how something is constructed. With these observations, I recreate your product to new future proof standards that have a positive impact on the user and the environment.

Re-engineering your products has a high commercial value for businesses and brands that want to innovate towards a more sustainable future. Studio Jeffrey Heiligers works with businesses that want to be a pioneer in making a positive change without greenwashing.
