We are driven by creating products that help ordinary people to reach healthier, safer and better life conditions.

Design studio

Bluelarix Designworks is an Amsterdam based product design studio with a team of experienced designers and developers. We design and develop new products for courageous companies that contribute positively to ordinary people's lives.

Our name and identity

The blue larch (larix in latin) is a northern tree. Larches are serious, alive, immortal, the larch is courageous. The larch dislocates time-scales, puts human memory to shame, reminds one of the unforgettable. The larch fills the forest with its elusive smell of turpentine. If you inhale this smell more deeply, you will understand it is the smell of life, the smell of courage.


We want to help ordinary people reach healthier, safer and better life conditions. Therefore we strongly believe that product design should contribute to a positive change in people's lives. We want to use product design for good.

Sometimes such a positive change is rather small, yet also important, like helping people to exercise more.

Sometimes a change can be large, like helping people to fight illness with a product that helps them to inject medicine themselves. We help companies to take courageous steps that lead to such change.

Our history

The plans for starting our design studio were made in 2006 in Norway where founders Andreas and Maria were invited by a group of Norwegian entrepreneurs in the Nordfjord aera to create a design studio that would be specialized in product design and product development. Eventually these plans did not become reality in Norway, but in the Netherlands.
  • Right at the start of 2007 the studio was founded in a small town in the north of the Netherlands and started to deliver one-stop design and product development services.
  • In 2008 we added knowledge in the fields of electronics development and embedded software, apart from concept design, engineering and human factors.
  • In 2010 we moved the design studio to a new facility called the Kauwgomballenfabriek, a refurbised factory in Amsterdam. This location was a better solution for a growing number of international clients that were flying to Schiphol Airport.
  • In 2011 a dedicated lab space was added for electronics design, interaction design and prototyping.
  • In the beginning of 2013 we moved the design studio into a bigger space in the creative hotspot "De Overkant", an old diesel engine factory in Amsterdam Noord.
  • In the beginning of 2014 we added more space to the studio, as the growing team and bigger projects did not fit anymore.
  • In 2015 we added new people to the team and we won two 'best sports products' awards on the ISPO.

mission & values

We partner with courageous companies and design products that contribute to a positive change in people's lives.

During our design process we continuously keep people in mind. We design, create mockups & prototypes, run user research and test interaction and ergonomics on real users, creating a long-lasting meaning for people.
  • We care about people
  • Beauty and great meaning is a perfect combination

  • modern design studio, with dedicated spaces for sketching, ideation and 3d cad engineering.
  • lab for electronics development, interaction and prototyping.
