Hans trained originally as an interior architect. Over the years, he has developed into an all-round ‘spatial psychologist’. Positively influencing human behaviour in a pleasurable way is something that he finds both enjoyable and professionally challenging. He approaches a space as if it were a musical composition. Like music, a space is made interesting by its contrasts, dissonances and the masterly ‘touch’ of the designer. He sees energy, emotion, soul and humour as the most important characteristics of a project. You won’t be surprised to learn that Hans’ hobby and great passion is music, both as a performer and as a listener. He also finds time to go running regularly.
“A space is like music – contrast, emotion and soul combine to make a great composition”
Translating brand experiences into architecture. This has been Bas’ starting point for all the different design projects that he has completed in recent years. And will continue to be his primary theme for future projects as well. Since his graduation in architectural design from the St. Joost Academy in Breda in 2005, Bas has worked for a number of different interior design agencies. He also worked as a self-employed entrepreneur under the name of BAS for a while. He joined Wit Design in 2010 and now works with his father Hans on the company’s interior projects. For example, he was closely involved in designing the showrooms for a number of premium car brands like Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo.
“My heart lies with projects where I can translate a brand experience into architecture”
Tessa, a young and enthusiastic designer, is Wit Design’s latest acquisition. Originally hailing from the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant, she now lives in Utrecht after graduating from the St. Lucas college in Boxtel where she studied Interior & Spatial Design. She has worked previously for different stand builders as a stand designer. This expertise comes in useful in facing up to the many new challenges at Wit Design. Tessa also likes deadlines, an ideal characteristic in her job.
“I do my best and most creative work under pressure”
Hennie Koorn is a driver and engineer, the trouble-shooter of WITDESIGN.

Marlou is a young interior designer with spunk! In 2010 she graduated from the Academy St. Lucas at Boxtel. After she expended her work experience in The Netherlands and other coutries, she fulfills now the part of Project Manager at Wit Design.
Besides technical drawing, Marlou has control over the management during the construction of the stands.

“In this inspiring work environment my qualities are well reflected.”
WitDesign is also very cost-effective, which is a constant concern of our clients. For us, the most distinguishing factor with them is that they will do whatever it takes. Once we had a very unusual request for a special type of refrigeration unit to serve a nutrition formula. This was a bit complicated and required special mixing and storage of a medical nutrition product. Because of Bas’s efforts we had an extremely successful show.
I would highly recommend WitDesign to anyone who wants a company that exceeds their design expectations while always keeping the clients’ objectives in mind.”
I think I still didn’t hear “no, that is not possible” coming from WitDesign. Overall WitDesign has the perfect balance of reliability your can expect from a trusted partner, with the flexibility and creativity of true professionals.
I would advise other companies to work with WitDesign without any hesitation – and I intend to keep working with them for the foreseeable future to support all of TomTom’s events and trade shows.”
