We show you the best of each material in surprising applications and desirable objects




Milo Dool design is a product design studio based in the Netherlands. We design, develop and manufacture products driven by our passion for raw materials.


We are continuously exploring materials by doing research and experiments. That is how we discover new and unexpected applications, which we transform into innovative designs. All of our products are designed and manufactured to high quality standards using both handcraft and modern production techniques.

Milo Dool (1991) is graduated in 2014 as a product designer at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam. After his study he founded his own design studio.
