Eindhoven

A design practice built for the city

Bron van Doen is a service design studio founded in 2016 by Dutch designer Ron Krielen and South Korean designer Minsung Wang. Both Design Academy Eindhoven alumni, together they have built a unique design practice based in the inspiring city of Eindhoven.

Most known for its high-tech industry and PSV football club, Eindhoven is also a lively city of social innovation for improving the city and quality of life, making it the perfect place for the duo to start as social designers. Working together with diverse people in the city, they have realised many projects including a volunteer social workspace that has been developed into the Uit de Buurtfabriek foundation.

How can design make a difference in a city? How can it be useful for its many inhabitants? And how can diverse people work together towards tangible, mutually beneficial outcomes? They are working on projects related to these questions, expecially for Eindhoven and its inhabitants, and is constantly looking for new opportunities to work in this city as well as others.

Ron Krielen

Ron
Krielen

Co-founder &
Hands-on idealist

Ron is a maker, facilitator, leader, connector and the social motivation of Bron van Doen.

Motivated to provide help and to be of service for those that need it, Ron studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven to learn how to use design as a tool for social innovation. Currently he is also the manager of the Uit de Buurtfabriek foundation.

When Ron is not busy guiding people to work together, he is spending time with his wife and two beautiful children.

Evie
Sparidaens

Designer &
Open minded

Evie is a good listener, interested, knows how to create a safe atmosphere and is enthusiastic.

In her work, she strives to provide insight into other people's worlds and to create mutual understanding. She discovered this during her studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven.

When Evie isn't networking and listening to stories, she's lying on her yoga mat or dreaming about her next trip.

Lian
Kroes

Designer &
Creative connecter in the web

Lian is a doer and curious observer with a listening ear.

She learned how to connect design, people and the environment during her studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Lian gets pleasure from an idea that develops during the process; it creates a result that is never finished and offers room for different angles.

When Lian is not busy connecting people with each other or their environment, she is doing odd jobs in her house or in the kitchen.

Axel
Coumans

Designer &
Adventurer

Axel is a curious mind with a fascination for the flying, crawling, slithering, rooting, meandering and screeching folks with whom we live together in the city.

Through his work as a designer, he attempts to tune into a biodiverse city through participatory and collaborative processes.

When Axel isn’t designing, he is most probably out on a long walk, or baking pancakes from acorns he has gathered in the woods.

Minsung Wang

Minsung
Wang

Co-founder &
Mindful creative

Minsung is a thinker, researcher, supporter, connector and the bookworm of Bron van Doen.

With a background in art history in South Korea, he came to the Netherlands to learn about Dutch design. After finishing his studies in Eindhoven, he decided to stay and explore what design can do to help people work together and improve the city they live in.

When Minsung is not busy coming up with new ways for people to work together, he can be found cycling around the villages nearby Eindhoven.
