Ultra Studio is an independent design studio in Amsterdam, founded by industrial designer Daan van Tulder in 2012. Daan works multidisciplinary between the digital and the physical. His focus is specifically on nothing in particular, whether it’s product design, interior design, graphic design or making lighting solutions. As long as it challenges him, he is interested. The studio partners with brands like Heineken and Converse, studios like Storeage and Paper Island and institutions like DGTL and Foundation NDSM.
Ultra Studio celebrates functional design and uncomplicated solutions. In the approach of projects Daan always seeks for the relevance in form, function and culture. Most of his work is commissioned, but sometimes he finds the opportunity to develop his own ideas into tangible results.
Works have been granted national and international awards: Renault Design Award, Design Innovation Award Slovenia, Vitra Design Challenge, Senior Design Contest. Daan is also co-founder of Amsterdam based music organisations These Guys and Banlieue and hybrid teacher Media, Arts and Crafts.
This website presents a selection of the studios work. Don’t hesitate to contact Daan if you have any questions, inquiries or collaborations.
