Jelle Mastenbroek graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2012. He is a member of Collaboration O, where he works as an independent designer and collaboratively with the other studio members.
Taking a humorous and playful approach, many of Mastenbroek’s works reveal a nostalgic perspective on our relationship to money. He uses storytelling as a tool to reflect on society, often resulting in interactive installations made in collaboration with musicians, composers, and programmers.
Frank is a cuckoo clock featuring an animated character called Frank. According to Mastenbroek, Frank is an expert on time and being punctual; he is never too early or too late. Mastenbroek’s project offers a playful perspective on our ideas about managing the daily nine-to-five routine.
Made in collaboration with artist Niels Hoebers.
