Studio Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters is based in Klokgebouw, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Together we do practical design projects, as well as autonomous work. Living with nature, history, colour and environment are the foundation of our work. We don’t design specifically for the industry or the consumer, but try to materialize or tell about the things we’d like to have around us or that fascinate us.
The process of manufacture is an important tool in our design process. To understand how the end product is made gives us the opportunity to translate the idea in the best way and to be innovative.
Maarten Kolk & Guus Kusters exhibited their work at Sotheby’s London, Zuiderzeemuseum Enkhuizen, MU Eindhoven, Design Museum Holon, Pierre Bergé & Associés Brussels, Kavan Ronsey Brussels, Christian Ouwens Rotterdam, Audax Textielmuseum Tilburg, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam and 21_21 Design Sight Tokyo among other places.
