About us

Visavu Design was established in 2011 by graphic designer and art collector Judith Hopstaken. Since then Visavu Design specializes in sourcing, transporting, restoring and installing 20th century design classics.
The design gallery focuses on three departments:
• Midcentury Modern Scandinavian furniture and lighting from 1940 to 1975.
• Italian furniture and lighting from 1950 to 1985.
• Dutch design furniture and lighting from 1940 to 1985
We work closely with collectors, interior designers and architects to source and propose objects for interiors projects. Our restorers and upholsters are craftsmen who have long experience with important and collectible furniture.

In 2023 we will be launching our new and revised gallery Visavu Art & Design in Woudrichem, the Netherlands. The scenic historical fortification of Woudrichem is part of the famous Dutch “Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie”  which has been recently submitted to Unesco World Inheritance. The building in which our gallery is based dates from 1854 and formed part of this unique military fortification.

From the beginning of 2023 Judith started new collaboration with sculptor and art collector Mariëtte van der Ven. Both Judith and Mariette graduated in arts. Mariette is a professional artist, who has been creating mainly ceramic works of art since 1995. She has her own studio in Nieuwendijk, The Netherlands.

With Mariette joining our venture, we aim to continue proposing a cutting-edge selection of modern design furniture and lighting as well as a unique collection of contemporary art which we personally select.

With our collection of contemporary art and exquisite modern design we hope to offer our clients inspiration to select and create inventive and unique homes in which art forms a great and important part of the ambiance.

Visavu Art & Design gallery is opened on Fridays from  14.00h-18.00h, on Saturdays from 14.00h-18.00h and 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 14.00h-18.00h and by appointment.

The collection is also available through our online gallery www.visavu.nl.
