Born and bred in The Netherlands, Maaike brings a progressively Dutch and uniquely female perspective to Industrial Design. Equally inspired by the tradition of craft and potential of industry, she has developed complex high-tech products as well as artful projects. Her prolific design career is marked by a wide range of innovative products, long-term consulting relationships and by experimental projects that have been exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide.
In 2005 Maaike Evers co-founded the experimental industrial design studio Mike & Maaike together with Mike Simonian. In 2011 Mike & Maaike was acquired by Google, where they are working on technology projects. Maaike was named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business, and was included in the seven top up and coming product designers in Metropolis magazine.
