Klaas Schaafsma

Expert Design

“My fascination with material culture reaches beyond the borders of design.”

Klaas grew up in an environment furnished with design classics, although he did not pay much attention to this until he started studying in the field of art and design. Getting involved with the historical and cultural aspects of ‘design’ turned into a subject that has become of major interest throughout his life.

‘My fascination with material culture reaches beyond the borders of design,’ Klaas says. Looking closer, everyone may uncover different types of ‘value’ lying hidden in objects. Klaas feels delighted that he’s able to showcase all types of products of material culture on Catawiki to an international audience on a weekly basis.

Catawiki gives Klaas the opportunity to keep learning about the objects and the stories behind them. His main focus is to make sure that Catawiki's users can, at all times, find something that will suit their status and satisfy their needs in search for ‘a life less ordinary’.
