Carolina Wilcke

Carolina Wilcke was born in 1980. Her interesnt for all things creative is life-long. Before her initial training as a goldsmith, she wanted to be a sculptor and quotes Brâncusi as one of her influences. An encounter with a goldsmith led her to this new path. Howevr, when copmleting this study, she was lookinf for more.

“I learned a craft, to find out i actually wanted ti design things”.

Carolina attended the world-famous Design Academy Eindhoven, in order to acquire the tools that could help her channel her abundant imagination. She recieved a degree in design from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2009. At that time directed by the famous trend forecaster, curator, publisher and educator Lidewij Edelkoort. Carolina graduated specializing in interier products that are on the edge of art and design. During the institution’s graduation show in 2009 Irving and Miriam van Dijk, the gallerists from Priveekollektie Contemporary Art | Design, immediately noticed the intriduing combination between the celebtation of art history and her refined reinterpretation and appropriation of it. SInce then  her work has been exhibited at Design Miami/ Basel, PAD fairs, Art Geneva and others.

The products she design for her are not only functional objects, but they are also objects between which we live, they are our companions. “They should have an own identity and make us feel at home”.

Carolina was co-founder of De Intuïtiefabriek in 2010. Together with Amba Molly, Eefiene Bolhuis and Eva Gevaert they layed ground for the vision of De Intuïtiefabriek. From 2013 Carolina decided to continue with her solo career.
