KUNST-S is a Design Studio based in the Netherlands. Our Mission is to show to the outside world - but also within the plastics industry - the beauty of plastic waste. Our products will raise questions and trigger conversations. The ambition of a circular economy does not only have to be necessary and businesslike, above all we want to show not only the beauty of the thought but also the beauty of this material!
Lisanne Kamphuis (founder KUNST-S) started developing a unique processing technique in her graduation year. Out of curiosity about how things work a unique process has been created during a period of time. Because of this process, KUNST-S can deliver you a piece of design that will exceed your expectations of this material, the true hidden beauty of plastic waste, merged with today’s modern design! KUNST-S gives used plastics qualities that are similar to high-quality classic materials such as stone, marble, and ceramics.
Our team of product designers, image creators, and creative minds have worked hard to show you the hidden beauty of used plastic that we have always been seeing. By seeing the smallest visual details in this used plastic, we have created our own production process to give this waste visual properties that are close to other high-quality materials such as stone, marble, and ceramics. With the bigger goal. Added value to the plastic waste stream!
Our team isn’t afraid of a little perspiration to create something we’re all proud of. We’re happy when you are happy. We see you as our creative partner and want to work with you to make together a great sustainable product to make your environment a little more beautiful and sustainable!
Hardenberg, The Netherlands
We are KUNST-S, a a close-knit team of product designers, image creators and creative minds that love to learn, collaborate and create.
From my childhood, my interest in plastics, sparked by my father, has finally led to the start of our company KUNST-S.
My father, who has been working in the plastics industry for more than 30 years, took me to factories and exhibitions at an early age.
As a child, I was amazed at the seemingly unlimited possibilities of plastics.
Growing up in this industrial environment I was constantly surrounded by this material, which always caught my attention. I fantasized at a very early age about shapes and applications for this plastic waste stream. My goal is to show the outside world but also within the plastics industry the beauty of plastic waste that I have always seen!
In my years of study, I developed a unique production process that brings the beauty of recycled plastic to life in a beautiful way! this was the start of our company KUNST-S.
Founder & Creative director Lisanne Kamphuis
Starting as an intern some 7 years ago Lisanne walked into our business and our lives and never left. From day one she expressed an extraordinary ambition and drive to achieve the ultimate. She does something perfect, or not...
Lisanne kept working at our company besides her studies; Environmental styling and product designer.
In our daily creative work, she is an indispensable colleague.
We were involved at the very beginning of her company Kunst-s and are committed to staying on board.
During the years I recognized that we connect on a special creative level and inspire each other. Kunst-s and her approach to the market in a very creative visual way links totally to our vision on visual marketing.
We are proud to help Lisanne with high-standard photography and video.
Our brainstorm sessions are very inspiring to us both and bring our both companies to the next level.
