Thijs Smeets

”Your interior reflects who you are, so make something of it.”


Thijs Smeets studied Industrial Product Design at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. He has now been running his own company for 13 years: Studio Smeets Design, based in a wonderful art nouveau building in the centre of Amsterdam, with a view of the Westertoren.




Spot gives you a wonderful family feeling, just like so many other Pode products. This is even more the case with this beautiful swivel chair, however, because Spot is a full cousin of our Sparkle. Despite the clearly recognisable family lines drawn by Thijs Smeets, Spot is unique. The seat has fixed upholstery, for example, without a separate cushion, giving it a very different look.



Sparkle is a lovely modern revolving armchair that nevertheless has a bold retro look. The great thing about Sparkle is that you have plenty of space for variation. Because you can choose exactly which colours you want to give the body, the seat cushion, the swivel foot and the stitching seams. That way, you can make the most daring combinations.
