Nob Ruijgrok


Nob Ruijgrok passed away on 13 June 2022. I studied with Nob at the Academie voor Industriële Vormgeving (later Design Academy) in Eindhoven and during the holidays we earned money renovating and painting houses. We discovered that we were inexhaustible. When I founded my company, I asked Nob if he’d like to put a product on the market together. 

Once again, working together was wonderful, even though there was hardly any financial result to speak of. As we worked together so well, and enjoyed doing so despite the lack of income, we liked the idea of a working partnership. We founded Eek & Ruijgrok and worked together until 2015. 

Nob was my friend and business associate. When we started working together, we were cut of the same cloth. And over the thirty years since we have grown together. I cherish Nob and will keep him with me.

My thoughts and love are also with Laura, Sammy, Jim and family.
