Bertjan Pot (1975-) is an appreciated Dutch designer, famous among the general public above all for his extravagant image of a "masked designer": one of his best-known works is in fact a series of extravagant and very nice rope masks, imaginative combinations of primitivist inspirations and research on materials personally chosen by him in numerous iconic shots. Graduated from the Design Academy of Eindhoven in 1998, Bertjan Pot founded and co-directed the Monkey Boys studio together with Daniel White, later starting his own business based in Rotterdam in 2003. One of his most fruitful collaborations is that with the Dutch brand Moooi, together with which he created award-winning products such as the Random Light lamp (1999, probably his best-known and best-selling product) or the Carbon Chair (2004, part of the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York and winner of the Elle Decor Award as best seat of the year). Among the other brands with which he has worked are Hay, Golran, Richard Lampert, Lensvelt, Mustache and many others. Lui received the Dutch Design Prize for best interior product in 2007 (won with his Slim Table produced by the Arco brand) and has been the protagonist of numerous exhibitions around the world.
