Let's face it — who has time to find the perfect shelf?
Here in Singapore, we are either busy, tired, or both.
And sometimes, the perfect shelf doesn't exist.
That's what CUSTO founder, Dutch designer Camiel Weijenberg found out when he tried to find a wardrobe for his wife.
Camiel moved to Singapore in 2013 to start a design company, Weijenberg.
His apartment had an odd space, and it made finding a good wardrobe difficult and painful.
With a carpentry background under his belt, Camiel saw an opportunity to make life better for people with the same needs.
He brought that idea to Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD).
With a group of final year students, designknus was born.
knus: a Dutch word meaning 'cosy, snug'. Sounds like 'canoes'.
