Jeroen van den Boogert and Has de Beer of Creative Use Of Technology

Creative Use of Technology is an idea of two entrepreneurs; Jeroen van den Boogert and Has de Beer. From our backgrounds in urban planning and architecture we came into contact with 3D printing and laser cutting. We became enthusiastic about the numerous possibilities and applications of these new technologies and decided to join forces and develop a new way to make our creative ambitions come true. This resulted in the establishment of Creative Use of Technology:  A creative company with its own designs and products, but also a facilitating platform for creative people, who wish to use these modern technologies in order to make their own creations.

There are different ways for us to come up with new ideas for our products. Sometimes we get our ideas from nature itself, like for instance with our wooden laser cut jewelry, where we found inspiration in the structures which can be found in nature, like the nerves of a leaf, a bee hive, molecules or various cell structures.

Another method we often use is to find a way to add a new value to an already existing item, by transforming it into a new product, in a creative and unexpected way. Examples of this are our wooden phone cases, which can be etched or engraved with a personal design or message, our laser cut notebooks and our jewelry made from old maps.

We offer a great variety of products, with our laser engraved wooden phone cases as flagship. These phone cases are crafted from real wood and are available for iPhone 4 & 5, Samsung Galaxy S3, S4 and S5 and S3 & S4 mini, with all kinds of laser engraved design. In addition to these wooden phone and iPad covers we sell laser cut and 3D printed jewelry, laser cut wooden clocks, lamps and notebooks and our own collection of wall art, with laser cut wall quotes and wooden engraved designs, all of our products can be personalized.

Most of our products are manufactured in the city of Breda, in the south of the Netherlands, where we have our own workshop and store.  We work with various traditional natural materials such as wood, fabric, leather, rubber, paper and cardboard,  but we also use ’modern’ materials like acrylics, perspex or other plastics. We also love to use recycled or sustainable materials.
