Joost and Kiki

Design Academy Eindhoven graduates Joost van Bleiswijk and Kiki van Eijk—known as Joost & Kiki—have gained a following for their conceptual art–based furniture, but recent pieces signal a change. Their Scratch dining table, benches, and ladder resemble Delft Blue Pottery, a likely nod to van Bleiswijk’s hometown.
