Bas ten Brinke
The international team of 70F is led by senior architect Bas ten Brinke (Amsterdam, 1972). Ten Brinke studied architecture at the Technical University of Eindhoven and graduated in 1995 with a 9 for his final project. At the age of 23 he started his own architectural firm that four years later became 70F.
Ten Brinkes ambition is reflected in his designs. He is constantly looking for strong construction and design solutions with which he can accomplish the wishes of his client within the (sometimes limited) budget. His style is progressive, minimalist and straightforward.
70F design sells both own designer items as products from external agencies. From applience knobs to complete kitchens, from pillowcases to handbags. She imports and resells products that are not yet for sale in the Netherlands, and offers a reduced rate to its own customers and fellow architects.
With its own product designs 70F earned various design awards. Including a nomination for the Dutch Design Selection, and multiple nominations in the Word Architecture Festival.
70F was founded by Bas ten Brinke and Carina Nilsson. In 2013 they decided to further their architecture careers separately. Carina Nilsson is currently working as an architect in Scandinavia. Bas ten Brinke stayed on as CEO at 70F.
