kiki & joost

Kiki van Eijk and Joost van Bleiswijk belong to the internationally renowned and successful graduates from the Design Academy Eindhoven. They represent a new generation of Dutch designers alongside famous designers such as Tord Boontje, Piet Hein Eek, Richard Hutten, Studio Job, Marcel Wanders, Jurgen Bey and Hella Jongerius. Kiki and Joost share a studio in Eindhoven and are not only a perfect designing couple they are also partners in life. In their work they are very focused, ambitious, hardworking and professional. While Kiki has a nostalgic approach collecting old cookbooks serving as a source of inspiration, Joost has an almost technical mathematical approach to his designs. In their home in Eindhoven, the phone is ringing constantly, it’s just madly busy. While Kiki is taking care of everything, Joost seizes the opportunity to go nuts with an artwork that serves as a guitar. The impression that stays with me is that despite the heavy workload they still take time to relax and have fun.
