Martijn Hoogendijk - designer

Experienced freelance creative director and design professional in furniture, interior and retail. 

A conceptual thinker and creator, working for national and international clients.

Martijn Hoogendijk (1970) is a Dutch award winning designer who started his professional career in 1994, when his first furniture piece was presented as part of the Droog Design collection, during the Salone del Mobile in Milan.

Together with Wiebe Boonstra and Marc van Nederpelt he formed Dumoffice in 1996. It became to be an internationally acclaimed design studio, operating from Amsterdam, working in the field of furniture, lighting and interior design. They were also founding member of a collective of self-producing designers called the ‘Dutch Individuals’.

In 2008, their furniture pieces formed the basis for a new Dutch furniture brand by the name of DUM.


He joined Storeage, an agency specialised in retail design and strategy, in 2004, where he became creative director, working for a great variety of clients world wide.


Since 2016 he is working as an independent designer under his own name, still based in Amsterdam.


Some of his designs are acquired by various international acclaimed museums. Also has his work been published in a wide range of national and international magazines and books.
