About Niels van Roij Design


we do what we do

We have a fascination for people. We believe it is important to be well informed: designers serve society and should therefore be familiar with it. Our team has a passion for design, from understanding the holistic overview to the smallest little detail. We love improving, iterating, researching and – the most important feature of our skill set – listening. Good design can make the world, and your tailor made motor car, a better place.


we do what we do

We are car design consultants and particularly interested in what a design can do to a human being. We have a broad interest, are curious and critical. Research is key to us and the starting point for everything we do. We get to the bare essence: question the question. Our studio is in London, our associates are everywhere. Our team has backgrounds in car design, marketing and design thinking. The design team is compact and London based, our associates network is big and worldwide. We work autonomous, but love to join forces. Design is no veneer. Design is strategy: the strategy of seduction.


we do – and how we could be useful to you

Niels van Roij Design is a London-based multidisciplinary automotive design studio. It specializes in coachbuilt motorcars. We are a design house: we have worked on concept cars and London taxi’s, design strategies and bespoke vehicles. Our design process is tailor made, we co-design with our clients: the patrons will participate in the design of their hand crafted, coachbuilt automobile. Every commission is a collaboration between the vehicle’s guardian and our London based design team.
