Kuyckxmeers

ANOUCK KUYCKX & THOMAS MEERS
Hasselt, Belgium

Kuyckxmeers is a Belgian design studio founded by Anouck Kuyckx (1990) and Thomas Meers (1991). Due to their architectural background, they are inspired by materials, functionality and geometric shapes.

Responsible use of materials is their main purpose. The duo does this by reducing objects to the essence and by using a zero waste design process. This results in a series of minimalistic zero waste design objects (handbags - vases - furniture). All products are handmade in Belgium.


" We don’t always need to reinvent. We need to use what is already there in a more conscious way."

Zero Waste

The zero-waste collection has minimalistic and timeless handbags that can last a lifetime, or even longer.

  • FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION


    An important inspiration for our handbags is the principle of "Form Follows Function", as it was developed in Modernism. It is based on abstraction, which is created by clean lines and geometric shapes in which functionality plays the main role. This principle, combined with responsible and efficient use of materials is barely our design.

  • THE LEATHER WE CHOOSE


    Since no material that is currently on the market has the qualities of leather, we searched for a way to use this material in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way. Therefore, we opted for the use of vegetable tanned leather where no chemicals are used for the tanning and coloring process. Moreover the material is biodegradable, but also firmer and stronger than other types of leather, which means it can last longer.

  • THE PLEATING TECHNIQUE


    The pleating technique is not only applied for aesthetic reasons, but also to keep the material as intact as possible and to create space. By pleating the two-dimensional material, it can be transformed into a three-dimensional, functional shape.
    A sheet of organic leather is completely used without residual material. First, the pattern is drawn on the leather sheet. After this, the handbag is pleated and sewn by hand.
