Koen Jacobs won the Overduinprijs 2017. Ever since 1992 this award goes to a promissing young designer on a yearly basis. This year it’s the first time the award by the “Stichting Henk en Ria Overduinfonds” goes to a Rietveld Academie-graduate. Koen Jacobs receives the award for his graduation piece, called: The Artificial Kingdom. The jury praises the combination of craftsmanship, stratification en playfulness in his work.

Koen Jacobs graduated from the Jewellery department.
His work is on show until October 25 at Galerie Marzee in Nijmegen, Lage Markt 3, www.marzee.nl.
