Annemarie Piscaer and Iris de Kievith started SerVies from a shared interest in the (re)use of material and because they see the need for a healthier environment. Iris de Kievith is primarily focused on the overarching importance of people and their surroundings, while Annemarie Piscaer sets out from the idea that everything can be used as a material, even invisible particles of dust.

After studying architecture at Delft University of Technology, Iris de Kievith has worked as a freelance architect or in a team on various recycling projects. She launched her architecture studio in 2007. It mainly targets commissions involving transformation. Her starting point is: If your surroundings contribute to making you who you are, which environment would you like to create?

Annemarie Piscaer graduated as a designer from the Design Academy Eindhoven. After a period working as a C2C textile designer for Desso, she set up Studio Dust in 2014. Her design studio focuses on material research and design, based on the idea that everything always has a value, even the tiniest particle, from dust to dust. As a reflection on her own changing design practice, in 2017 she obtained a Master Education in Arts with the research project ‘As a designer I’m an expert, I’m an amateur’ on transdisciplinary design practices and their consequences for design education.
