Artist & designer and founder, Soulmate
The ambition of Soulmate is to create portable spaces and experiences to bring a moment of peace and relaxation to the masses. In our 'always-on' culture, we help people take a break, relax, and be inspired by our unique experiences and playful design. Our strong focus on portability and versatility makes it possible to easily fit Soulmate into multiple environments. Modern craftsmanship is combined with local production and circular design. 'Cavus' (which means something like 'cave or hole,' emphasizing the 'back to basics' vibe) will be our first demountable space with a unique timer-lock to ensure a peaceful moment for the visitor. For Cavus, we work together with local parties like Shellduck for degradable wall materials and Kubuni for our construction. The spaces will be built in Zwolle, Netherlands, where we are located.
