Plamen van Dijk is a father, an interior designer, and life lover : )
He has more than 20 years of experience creating functional and sustainable interiors, focusing on ease of use, quality and the client's desired identity.
In his interior designs, he always seeks the perfect balance. The designs are timeless, occasionally with a wink. Plamen gains inspiration from nature, architecture, art, thoughtful product design and travel.
Plamen is at his best when he can think along and advise on challenging interior design issues and design puzzles. Creating relationships in the design between space and use, inside and outside, routing and sightlines, material and atmosphere are pre-eminently his expertise.
I believe good design starts with the well-being of the user, meaningful spaces that transcend the purely functional.
In a nutshell
As a child, Plamen van Dijk (1972, Amersfoort) stood out because he was creative and enjoyed drawing. In high school, at age 15, he won first prize at an interscollegiate.
While studying Architectural Design with majors in architecture, interior and furniture design at the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague, Plamen regularly created custom furniture, murals and logos for individuals, companies and hospitality businesses in addition to interior designs.

In late 2009, Plamen van Dijk founded the design studio LTD STUDIO B.V. (which stands for Listen. Think. Design.) with largely a focus on business interiors. In early 2023, Plamen van Dijk - design studio was launched. Under this sustainable design brand, other creative designs such as product and hospitaly designs will be featured in the future in addition to living and working environments.
