About me

My name is Iris Hagel and I’m 27 years old.
I graduated from AKV St Joost in 2018. I studied Graphic and spatial design but my main focus has always been on spatial design. After a year of having my studio @ ElectronBreda, I decided to do a master's in Industrial design at the KABK in The Hague, I recently graduated (2021). With my work, I always try to tell a story or deliver an emotion. For me, the concept and the research of work are as important as the work itself. I like to work with durable materials that are not harmful. With my work, I like to confront the visitor in a way that when they arrive home it still leaves them with something to think about.
