Established in 2007, studio Jens Praet is a design art studio based in San Gimignano, a beautiful medieval town near Siena in Italy, run by belgian designer Jens Praet.

Praet studied Industrial Design in Firenze and attended the Master classes at the renowned Design Academy in Eindhoven under Droog Design’s co-founder Gijs Bakker.


Studio Jens Praet works from a conceptual and artistic angle on various topics of contemporary culture, with an intensive approach towards traditional handcrafting in combination with avant-garde techniques. Jens has a strong passion for everyday objects, honest materials, finding inspiration in unexpected details and daily issues which often become the starting point in developing a new concept.


Studio Jens Praet’s work has been exhibited at important international venues and has been featured in many major design publications and newspaper world-wide.


Praet’s Shredded Sidetable is part of the permanent collection of the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh and the Mint Museum in Charlotte.


Together with his brother and mother, Jens runs Galleria J, a jewelry/art gallery and also a concept/fashion store, both located in San Gimignano, Italy .
