Happy new year!

Its official, 2019 is here!

And the celebration of the new year is a focus we wanted to take.

not what happens for the next year, not reminisce on what happened the last but the celebration for celebration’s sake!

party to be happy and happy to party!

And as we celebrate the end of the year hoping you are taking the time to celebrate on your side, we question the colours, tones and geometries that remind us of being festive.

Party to be happy and happy to party!

Can simple objects provoke the party feeling?

Candle holders come in many shapes and sizes, but this version of advent crown strips all the extra, leaving only the essential to stand out and shine.

Wrap, uncover, reveal and celebrate - window display

Holiday season is on and it definitely means that gift and wrapping season is coming as well !


For our new window display design at Deense Kroon, our inspiration came from the wrapping ritual that goes along with the Christmas period. In a very simple and essential installation, the mannequins are wrapping themselves in paper rolls, getting ready for the gift season !

Wrap, uncover, reveal and celebrate

Are the key words of this playful display.

The minimal color scheme of the display gives freedom to the shop to arrange new clothing styles and combinations along the season.

Winter set at Deense Kroon

Remember stepping into your Grand dad’s reading corner and feeling transported into his own galaxy ? This was our main inspiration for the winter interior set we designed for the scandinavian shop Deense Kroon.

A cozy but serious atmosphere, reminding us of those dark winter days when it feels good staying home and devouring a good book.

Black friday - creative campaign

Last week has been very inspiring when working on our new Black Friday campaign, and we are so excited to finally share it with you !

Shadow play

Geometrical patterns extended from the actual object.

Since Black Friday goes along with light prices, the concept of our creative campaign focused on the surprising effects of light.

We played with spotlights to enhance the contour and profile of our products in creating majestic and impressive shadows, for a very graphical outcome. The shadows drawn on our set became an extension of their product, and really felt alive when the lights were moving. If you are curious about the process behind it, check our instagram stories @crioll.design !

KorsIT. Making it cool!

“Making it cool” was the main importance for S. when we talked about their wishes for their companies’ head quarters. They had recently moved in a newly renovated building in Zwembadweg and needed an extra touch to give the space their personality.

We have been working on it on and off for the last year but here is its latest advance.

Ill share images of the “before” status so you get a better idea of what we did.

With this project we realised how much we love to represent a brand through its interiors.

Entrance, hall, interior design, interior project for Kors IT Headquarters in Eindhoven .jpg

This is the entrance hall; blue is their main corporate colour, so we played around with it generating a play with the different geometries of the paint vs the storage boxes - the well known Mini Stacked by Muuto.

The Dots added to make room for their coats; the wall becomes some kind of ephemeral installation that is always changing depending on the users and the season of the year.

Looking into the “playroom from the entrance.

* work in progress.
I can see a beautiful Logo to greet visitors as well as a few compliments to tie everything up…

Lounge space, interior design project for Kors IT headquarters in Eindhoven 5.jpg

Being it a young IT company means their people are really into games, of course this meant that we had to give it a special attention. again, Blue to talk about the brand and a little yellow to create contrast. Contrast and lamps created all the difference in this corner.

The rug is an amazing recycled plastic-fiber rug made in Denmark called Bolon, check it out, we love it.

Baux Sound panels - interior project, office space, workspace 9.jpg

The far end of their works space’s main problem was the sound. Having it an open angle ending and such a a big size, concrete floor, you could barely talk with someone without hearing your own voice too loud.
The walls where already covered with large sound absorbing frames, but it was clearly not enough for such a space.

At the far end we complimented the walls with these fun panels from BAUX. super cool sound solution you can read more about here. They are modular, so you can really play around with them. And that’s what we did!

I wouldn’t mind working here…

That’s it! check back again for updates, Got any questions? contact us, or comment in the post!

until next time..

Jungle corner

Spring is finally here! and we have been working in new fresh settings. This lovely green corner witch we created with Lore Stroe will be part of an incredible project we are working on. Soon you will hear more about it ;)

Our centre piece: the Spine lounge chair, gives a solid character and strength to the setting while the velour makes it soft giving it an elegant touch.
