Niels Albers is a Dutch artist and designer living and working in Amsterdam. In 2010 he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Audio-Visual department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. After obtaining a Master of Interior Architecture at the Sandberg Institute in 2018, he was one of the founders of Fabulous Future a collective of seven, which is engaged in combining research, development and construction of spaces, events and situations.
His great talent is to make the most wonderful ideas technically and practically concrete, preferably by designing constructively, which can be seen in some of his works in public space.
Niels is engaged in research into the relationship between humans and animals, with a genuine concern for the impact of the human species on our planet's ecosystem. All this is based on a fascination with origins, games, maps and routes. Anthropocentric concerns mixed with an architectural fetish.
