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

As graduates of the 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 hope that this approach results in a body of design work that is intellectually engaging, aesthetically rich, and ultimately communicates to a wider audiences.
