Amsterdam-based design studios Cobbenhagen Hendriksen, founded in 2004, is a joint effort by Marijke Cobbenhagen and Chantal Hendriksen.

The studio is known for its design of books, magazines, visual identities, campaigns, and other printed matter.

Their approach is conceptual and experimental, but ensures a thorough comprehension of requirements and initial ideas. The singularity of every project pushes Cobbenhagen Hendriksen to achieve uniqueness in form and innovation in design.

By taking every detail and decision in the design process into consideration, the studio maintains high standards.

This approach has given Cobbenhagen Hendriksen an impressive résumé with customers like De Hallen in Haarlem, Tubelight Magazine in Rotterdam, the Netherlands Media Art Institute in Amsterdam, (then) TNT Post, Veenman Publishers in Rotterdam, the Netherlands Architecture Institute in Rotterdam, Amsterdam School of the Arts, and the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, among others.

This program is funded, in part, by public funds from the Netherlands Consulate General in New York.

Petra Blaisse started her career at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in the Department of Applied Arts. Beginning in 1987, she worked as a freelance designer and won distinction for her architectural installations.

Gradually her focus shifted to the use of textiles, light, and finishes in interior space and, at the same time, to the design of gardens and landscapes.

She founded Inside Outside in Amsterdam in 1991. The studio works in a multitude of creative areas, including textile, landscape, and exhibition design. Inside Outside, a team of diverse specializations and nationalities, works around the globe on projects of increasing technical sophistication, ambition, and scale.

Inside Outside has designed installations and textiles for the Seattle Public Library, Cornell University's Milstein Auditorium, and the Chazen Museum of Art.

A monograph of their work is Petra Blaisse/Inside Outside (NAi, 2007 & Monacelli Press, 2009).
