Gijs Kuijpers

It reads like a centuries-old fairy tale, but Gijs did indeed start out sweeping the floor of a furniture maker’s workshop to earn some extra pocket money. Once the magic of seeing rough planks transformed into beautiful furniture had him under its spell, there was no escape. After leaving school, Gijs made a bee line for several furniture design institutes in the Netherlands and Belgium.

Cabinets of Curiosity

We are curious makers of things, things we dream up ourselves. Remarkable, useful, beautiful and original things. Sometimes they are made entirely by hand, sometimes partly by machine, in the future perhaps by robots. May be not robots. Always with an eye for detail and with an element of fun.

If you care to follow this blog and join our journey, we’ll share our successes and (occasional) failures with you and hopefully you’ll become a frequent visitor. Suppose that depends on us keeping you entertained. So let’s get on with the words and pictures.

Work in progress
