Steven Haulenbeek is a Chicago-based artist and industrial designer. He received his bachelor’s degree in drawing and sculpture from Hope College in Holland, Michigan in 2002 and his master’s degree in Designed Objects from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago in 2006. Haulenbeek’s work passes by the typical and seeks to invent unique production methods through which objects emerge organically. By interjecting uncontrollable variants within his techniques, Haulenbeek experiments with the balance between control and serendipity.

Two of Haulenbeek’s resin-bonded sand vessels were shown at hvíla editions' launch exhibition 'Tangible Beauties' during Berlin Art Week 2021.
