Profile

Grüezi, Welcome,

I am an experience designer, or in more profound words an experienced scenographer. I conceptualise, design and realise narrative environments for cultural institutions, public spaces and companies.
 
Amsterdam > Lucerne
This summer, I moved with my family from Amsterdam to Lucerne. Just like that, for the adventure and our love for the mountains. 
Here in Lucerne, I work on a self-employed basis, but I also like to be hired as a ‘freelancer’ within existing teams. For example, I am currently hired by Steiner Sarnen Schweiz.
Does your organisation lack creative know-how and fresh perspectives? Please feel free to contact me.

Kamiel Vorwerk is a multidisciplinary designer working on the creation, activation and transformation of public spaces.

His concept of public space is informed by his Dutch background, in which the word “publiek” carries a dual meaning, referring to both an openly accessible space and also an audience. It is his purpose to create spatial experiences that reveal context, interaction, and beauty.
