About

We are Samuël Dirksz and Rena Noordermeer, husband & wife, adventurers and creative entrepreneurs.  
We recently moved from the Netherlands to Norway to be closer to nature and follow our dreams of running a small farm and living more sustainable. We are looking for possibilities to share the peace of mind that Norway brings us. 

Sam is a serial entrepreneur and is currently working as a software project manager and parttime woodturner.
Rena is educated as a houseplant specialist and works as a potter. Whether it’s creating ceramics, giving advice on plant care, hosting workshops and events or collaborating with creatives and brands, Rena always adds her easy-going aesthetic. Our farmhouse is a showcase of the things we like, make and design.

Studio Hear Hear offers a range of handmade objects and a small selection of well designed and responsibly made goods. Both products made in the studio and selected items are characterised by simplicity and authenticity. We go by the “quality not quantity” quote which means that we like to keep the selection of brands and designs clear and limited. 

History

Hear Hear started out as a small online shop and blog in 2011 before expanding to a ‘tiny two story shop’ in Amsterdam in 2012. After three turbulent years founder Rena Noordermeer decided at the beginning of 2016 to close down the brick and mortar shop to continue as a design studio and online shop again.

In Sept 2018 we moved from the Netherlands to Norway.

Sustainability

With nature as our inspiration, we believe that it is very important to focus on and work with eco friendly products and brands. We try to work with sustainable and organic materials as much as possible..

We’re in this together

By buying things we support the love and energy put into a product by it’s maker. The products collected by Hear Hear are from people who share our vision about responsible consumerism and care about the world we live in. Welcome to the club!
