Studio Makkink & Bey

PROOFFLab Magazine

The project

An initiative by furniture manufacturer PROOFF and Studio Makkink & Bey explores the future of the working environment. The online platform works as a laboratory. Each month, a visionary is invited to provide an example of his or her vision as an essay or picture. The publications serve as inspiration (or impetus) for new designs or interior design solutions.


A label that does not just make products, but also invests in research and knowledge sharing. In addition to the long-term cooperation with Makkink & Bey, this is what the committee appreciates most about PROOFFLab Magazine. The design of the digital magazine is not hierarchical, which is perfectly in line with the objective of making knowledge available to everyone. The live sharing and exploring of knowledge through workshops and debates in Milan is a tangible supplement to the magazine.

— Besides making products Makkink & Bey also invests in research and sharing knowledge.
