Jesse van Maanen, Creative, Thinker of architecture
Jesse van Maanen

Know who you get into your home.

If you leave for just a moment, that’s when I strike. I’ll change the position of your plants. The bookshelves are completely rearranged. And that iconic Eames chair tucked away in the corner? He deserves a better spot. I’ll change the direction of your lamps to light up places that matter and right before you return. I’m back at my spot on the couch. Visibly content with myself with a cheeky grin awaiting your reaction. Nine out of ten are surprised, pleased, confused or upset…

Creativity for me means: purposefully changing someones surroundings. What medium I use is subject to discussion, always leaving my options open to the context and it’s goal. Whether it’s physically someone’s surroundings, what they see, sound or a product depends on what I, you or a brand want(s) to communicate.

My name is Jesse van Maanen, they call me the poltergeist. Currently I’m graduating at the art academy of Rotterdam.
