Collective of Souls
Exploring the balance between art and design, we aim to bring soulful objects in everyday life.
We treasure the temperament of each material and hand-make our objects to emphasize the narrative that nature has to offer.
Based in Amsterdam, Wdstck offers a range of multidisciplinary objects with an outspoken aesthetic that each tells a personal story.
Meet the Team
Nowadays everything needs to be better, slicker and improved, this gets on Jesse’s nerves. His longing for simplicity derives from Calvinistic times of frugality, thrift and perseverance. Nostalgia enables him to take a step back in our ‘fast forward’ world. By applying traditional craftsmanship and expressing his personal view, Sanderson designs intelligent yet simple hearted objects. Jesse designed the Altar table, Memento chair, Kodak chair and the Burned Chunk.
Catie Newell & Wes McGee
Catie Newell is known for taking unexpected turns, in her career and in her work. She seeks to make the familiar unfamiliar, and the material manufacturing process is a vital act in her work. His installations have unpredictable effects on their surroundings, intervening to highlight what is often invisible. "Exhale", a company in partnership with Wes McGee, creates a deep physical resonance between strength, fragility and the fleeting breath that brings them together. Catie & Wes designed the Exhale lights.
We value seas of freedom compared to generations before us. As an adult, you only have a fraction of the creative ability to think freely, compared to your childhood. In his creations, whether landscape architecture or product design, Wim breaks free from the limits fed and creates the most unexpected combinations and shapes. Wim designed the Burning Ego.
In his work, Knibbeler examines the space between the conscious and the unconscious, the banality and the mystery. In the definition of her sculptures, she tries to find the indefinable. She thus questions the mystery of life and death. Miriam Knibbeler mainly models human and animal figures in wax. Although the figures appear very realistic, in part due to the material, they deviate in terms of size and proportion to reality. The alienation that causes this elevates beings above reality. This makes them both ghosts and fairy tales. Miriam Knibbeler designed the OTO.
Chiel Kuijl's architectural projects mainly consist of ropes and spaces built above land, water and air. The same inspiration and the same technique are applied to the floating sofa. Kuijl includes swings and floating couches in its installations to involve human interaction.
“My work consists of connections in and around space. My research is about space. Space is the great nothingness that we can feel around us, but which only becomes visible when something actually takes up space.
Chiel Kuijl designed the Floating Divan .
Roland de Mul
Roland de Mul is an intuitive artist. Most of his designs start off as an idea in his head; the chosen material completes the last part of the puzzle. Sometimes it is the material and its possibilities that lead to an idea or a design. His objects have character, are quite daring and masculine. Due to this intuitive design process, the number of objects is limited. "If fantasy could be reality, maybe reality is fantasy and design an illusion." Roland de Mul designed the Sublight.
