Bram Kerkhofs Design Studio
Bram attended both a master course in goldsmithing and sculpting in stone. This explains his focus on knots and hinges and his passion for materials and techniques, characteristic of his design, but also for his way of working and his research. His work shows a great passion for mathematical systems and is very architectural.
From the modular composition of its various components, each object forms a self-contained whole. Strong in its form, unique in its use. Combinations of multiple objects lead to larger harmonious integers that seamlessly adapt to each environment. Bram's designs often are formal conceptions of new worlds.
He set up the collaborative project SAWA, in Libanon in 2019.
Coil is a modular cabinet system in which the 'shell' forms completely around the box as a semi-transparent curtain from a vertical and parallel woven elastic rope. It forms the middle between a classic open rack and a display cabinet and can be used from all sides. Coil redefines the cupboard as an object in its use.
