As a youngster of 12 years old, Sascha started working on wood as a hobby. When becoming an airline pilot by the age of 21, he spend his first money on woodwork machinery. During these years he shared a carpenters workplace with 3 other carpenters. Frequently his friends had to do without him while he was spending his time carpenting and so his nickname arose, “Gepetto” (named after the carpenter that created Pinocchio). An interesting detail is that Gepetto is Italian for Jip, the name of his partner with whom he has a relationship since 2000. His creativity was not unnoticed and he started to design kitchens and bathrooms. He set up his own company named Gepetto Creations in 2004, but as a designer he is more familiar under his own name Sascha van Druten. From kitchens and bathrooms to full rebuildings of private residences and corporate clients, Sascha has the results in his portfolio.
