Led by Kevin Rouff and Paco Boeckelmann, ThusThat is a design practice with a focus on materials and alternative making processes.

As graduates of the Stanford Univeristy, University of Twente, Royal College of Art (MA) and Imperial College London (MSc), our work with overlooked materials involves moving between scientific research, industrial practices, and making. We design independent collections, as well as designing for brands, consulting for industrial stakeholders, collaborating with research groups, and working alongside architects.
