Get to know a bit more about some of our designers;
Alain Frie (NL)
Alain Frie, yes the owner of NeXtime, but he is way more than that. He is also the creative director, always looking for new inspiration for clock designs. He gets his inspiration during visits to the factories and his permanent hunt for new materials, shapes and artwork. His designs are known to be innovative, creative and clean.
Jette Scheib studied industrial design at the University of the Arts (UdK), Berlin, and has worked since 2005 as an independent product designer specialising in home accessories. Her work can be plain and pure or narrative and playful, but often with a little twist that adds a new context or dimension to a functional object. Inspiration is everywhere: whether it is art, music, people and their stories, habits, clichés or simply life itself that feeds her creativity. She lives and works in Berlin.
Frits Vink is graduated in Industrial design at the university in The Hague and graduated in Design at the art academy in Arnhem . After this, he worked for the NASA to develop and design new products for the space industry. Frits Vink soon started his own design office to design products for the consumer market. His innovative designs were successfully presented at international design fairs and exhibited in museum of art. Frits Vink is famous for his all time bestseller-- our Plug-inn clock. A success story! Now Frits Vink lives in a beautiful country Brazil, where he is designing new products. With his new designs, he is affected to bring beauty, quality and happiness into your life. Never have Time? Make Time!
"Comprehend with all senses" is the philosophy of the German designer Ewald Winkelbauer's work. This shows amongst others in pens, household aids, lamps and urban furniture for renowned companies. He won plenty of national and international design awards and is shown in the MIK museum in Ludwigsburg. Probably not a hand which hasn't held his redesign of the Stabilo Boss Textmarker. His passion for designing clocks began when he was still a student. Not to capture time with numbers is his ambition, rather providing space for time.
London based Dutch designer Chantal Drenthe gets her inspiration from daily routine. Combined with her background in industrial design, she enjoys the creation of functional and aesthetic everyday products. Objects from her hand can be recognised by the play on form, words or life. It is the kind of items that make you question the normal and put a smile on your face.
Jan de Bouvrie (NL)
Jan des Bouvrie is a Dutch interior architect and product designer. He tapped out an unmistakable path to modern living, both in The Netherlands and abroad. The heart of all his work is based on symmetry, clear clean design and his wish to reduce things to the simplest form; “Never forget the essential”.
Original Dutch design with an international touch. That is the best way to describe the designs of Deal Design. They are based in the Netherlands and try to make items that people will instantly notice. Their goal is to always add something innovative or fun in their designs. Working with NeXtime is something they have always looked forward to. Time is an important aspect of everyday life. Being able to design time-related items that people use daily and that they will enjoy looking at them, has therefore, a very special place in Deal Design's heart.
WENergy is a design brand created by Wendy YC Chan in Hong Kong.
Wendy gets her inspiration from Sacred Geometry - Flower of Life, Seed of Life, Metatron, Merkaba and Yantra, etc. Apart from their aesthetic beauty, her designs use colours, patterns and imageries that aimed to enlighten and connect the viewers with their inner self and the universe.
In 2016, Wendy took a career break to refresh and reorient herself after many years in a finance and accountancy profession. She came across the spiritual realm of soul, body and mind during this time and developed a strong passion for spirituality, a powerful energy she hopes to share with other people through WENergy.

Studio So-Lo (DE)
Studio So-Lo was founded by Anna and Christof, who have, in the stages of their studies and previous jobs, already worked for renowned clients and employers. These valuable experiences, combined with their passion for designing and developing, are the basis for their work. Christof's driving force is his wealth of ideas, which draws from great curiosity and the sound knowledge in dealing with materials and manufacturing processes. This, paired with Anna's fine sense for colours, shapes and her ability to capture a design‘s essence, lead to sympathetic and aesthetic products.
