Story

Guido Ooms & Karin van Lieshout are a Dutch design-duo known for creating distinctively unique products while providing functionality throughout their designs. Both graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven, Guido Ooms & Karin van Lieshout strive to innovate designs that have an alluring effect.

The two designers have completely different personalities, therefore as a team, they complement each other impeccably. Guido’s high-spirited and frolic approach ensures that new ideas are constantly being invented, whereas Karin’s sensible and down-to-earth approach makes sure that the innovative ideas become a reality.

Next to product design they love to share their knowledge by arranging creative workshops around the world. Both Guido and Karin teach at the HKU University of the Arts Utrecht and Design Academy Eindhoven. Their latest social project ‘Ffrash’ gave them the opportunity to combine their love for interior products with the possibility to educate and learn from the former street children of Jakarta.

OOOMS arranges workshops for companies and schools around the world. The workshops are tailor-made based upon your needs and you can choose from various creative themes. We guarantee that it will be an inspiring experience with a huge energy boost!
