specializes in the design and composition of successful collections for leading

focuses on defining the architecture of surfaces; the structure, proportion,

furniture and fabrics.
After graduating as an industrial textile designer from the Design Academy Eindhoven under Ulf Moritz in 1989, she joined his studio in Amsterdam. In 1992 she co-founded the interior and industrial design studio Müller Van Tol. Together with her team, she develops collection frameworks, colour concepts and briefs for industrial clients that manufacture products mainly for the hospitality, care and office environments.
Since 2000, Christiane has been a member of Akzo Nobel’s industry leading colour research team, which creates the Akzo Nobel foundation’s annual Colour Futures report.
In 2006 she became an advisor to the Desso design team at Tarkett on the development of flooring concepts for the contract market workplace segment. Since 2016 Christiane has been design director of Vescom, overseeing all collections of wallcoverings, upholstery and curtain fabrics, and of Vescom’s global brand identity.
For American company HBF Textiles, Christiane has created through the years three prize-winning upholstery collections for the American contract market. This year her Lost & Found collection won the Neocon Gold Award.
In her work, Christiane focuses on exploring the possibilities of industrial production in the design and manufacture of materials that make sense. Her interest lies in how finished products communicate and how they affect our sense of wellbeing. To her, good design is not only functional, aesthetic and affordable, but also a reflection of the zeitgeist.
