Maarten Kolk (1980) en Guus Kusters (1979) work together since 2009. They both graduated cum laude from the department Man and Leisure at Design Academy Eindhoven. They develop autonomous projects and work as exhibition designers and curators.
Produced under Kolk and Kusters’ studio, the ‘Bound’ collection assembles scrap materials into forms of minimal furniture, held together by ropes and knots. The ‘Bound Stool’ and ‘Bound Bench’ use linoleum and chipboard, and continue the Dutch design duo’s poetic exploration of material and innovative methods of production. The collection was showcased at the Dutch Design Week in a featured exhibition entitled “Linoleum, a different dimension”.
