About us? It's about you!
and your design-wishes :)

While we obviously have our own strong creative vision, we always aim to please you - the client. We take time to understand the briefing and guide the client to what he/she wants.

So about us ---> Studio Lichtjaar is the design studio of designer Roel Elsinga. While mainly focused on interior architecture, we enjoy working in various fields of design.

Roel Elsinga

Art-director / designer Roel Elsinga studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven, where he graduated in 2001. He has worked with and for several renowned Dutch Designers over the course of his career.

His designs always strive to ensure harmony and balance without ever becoming boring. Roel's work combines both the feminine and masculine.

Concepting and developing new ideas is a key strength. Finding a fresh angle and an out-of-the-box solution is a win! Sometimes form follows aesthetics, but a clear vision on the design challenge makes all the difference.

Commissioned and uncommissioned work go hand in hand. Roel is smart, enthusiastic and enjoys positive energy.

What we are best at

Our Strong points

SLJ has a good feel for 'feng shui'. We love optimising the usable area and making an environment livable.
We do offices, hospitality, residential and events.
Whether it's custom furniture for a project or an autonomous design ... we love designing iconic pieces.
Combining aesthetics with message, SLJ has longstanding experience in designing a wide range of graphic applications from posters, books, flyers and logos to wall graphics & more.
We carefully analyse each situation, applying logic and design sense to get each project where it wants & needs to be.
We couldn't create something ugly if we tried ... we apologise :) We aim to please the eye and the heart.
A good concept is like the backbone of a project. We excel at finding the right concept for each design problem.
