"Since we are solar powered beings, our lives revolve around the sun. So let's focus on the brightest star we can see and feel."


Through speculative works Jeroen Timmer // jeruniverse.studio tweaks reality. Creating an alternative point of view for what we take for granted in our day to day lives. Take some distance to rethink and wonder why things are the way they are.

By creating working models, thought experiments of what could be are taken into the present moment and into our known universe. These tangible objects act as a starting point for conversation and contemplation.

Jeroen Timmer graduated from Rietveld Academy by designing four sustainable concept planes. He is the founder of EnvelopeBook- which reuses great, but 'obsolete', papers in unique notebooks and notepads.


At this years’ Dutch Design Week, Jeroen Timmer // jeruniverse.studio presents ‘Shinetime’. A new time measuring system that shows how much light is available each day.

As humans we are solar powered. Therefore it is important for our wellbeing to know when sunlight is available. By doing so we make best use of every sparkle of light.

Unlike our current time system, Shinetime is dynamic and moves along with the seasons.
