Nick Koppelaar is a Canadian industrial designer based in Toronto. His award-winning work features simple lines, bright colours and quality, sustainably sourced materials. An enduring focus since graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design has been to create and produce heirloom quality objects and lasting, livable spaces. Koppelaar creates prototypes and builds out of his design studio and workshop in Toronto’s west end called Area91. The Area91 creative space has been an integral part of the design process since its inception in 2016. Koppelaar is a trained welder, woodworker and draftsman which lends to the strong structural integrity of his work.
