Jongerius studied industrial design at the Eindhoven Design Academy. After graduating in 1993, she started Jongeriuslab in Rotterdam. In 2008 she moved her firm to Berlin, where she designs products for clients such as Maharam, Royal Tichelaar Makkum, Swarovski, Vitra and IKEA. She designs a broad range of products, including furniture, lighting, textiles and glassware but has a particular interest in ceramics.
Her work has been exhibited in museums and galleries such as the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, the Museum of Modern Art and Moss gallery in New York, the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, the Design Museum in London, and the Galerie KREO in Paris. It will no doubt still be in demand fifty years from now.
A survey of Jongerius's work entitled Misfit was published by Phaidon in 2003.
