All designs made by Peter van de Water are based on a single strong idea. These ideas are made into a recognizable, sometimes iconic design. The road from this idea to the final product is looking for that perfect combination of aesthetics, function & construction, all in close collaboration with his valued clients. Designs should be contemporary, but also need to have a timeless quality.
