We have a passion for craftsmanship, timeless design and natural materials that beautify with age
Our clients are our reflections. They are open-minded, dynamic individuals and businesses who appreciate real quality and life itself. Our products are designed to make people happy, bring comfort and embrace personal identity. The idea is so pure that Cocooning became a true lifestyle. Nowadays, people have more need to be able to escape from the hectic and fast world we are living in and that is why home really should feel like home. A safe and warm place. A place where you come to rest, but also get inspired. A space for Transformation. A Cocoon..
The story kicks off in 2005 when designer duo Seb Ackerstaff and Jessie Verdonschot founded the brand COCOON in Amsterdam. In an era where the market was dominated by a few high-end design brands selling products at ridiculous prices and at the other hand price-oriented mass production, they decided the time was right for a straight-forward concept: Making everlasting and sustainable design products at a reasonable price.
A decade later, we find the proof that this simple statement was a right one. Their team and list of achievements keeps growing: No one less than Piet Boon is responsible for the design of their latest bathroom collection. The products found their homes in prestigious projects all over the world and new exclusive COCOON showrooms open in different countries. Over the years COCOON has become an important point of reference within the sector.
Making timeless and sturdy design is only one side of the coin.. By using real sustainable materials and having the right people shaping these into pieces of usable art, our products will even make the difference after decades of use.
We are proud that the people working at our production studios exactly understand our vision.
In Italy near the idyllic Lago Maggiore, true craftsmen shape our taps and showers from noble stainless steel by hand and machine. New ideas from our designers offer a fresh look on tried and tested artisanal skills to make unique products according to traditional production values. In the same area the stonemasons from which their grandfathers were responsible for building the Dome in Milan, now use the latest cutting- edge technology on locally sourced marble, natural stone and modern sustainable materials like Silestone to produce our wash basins. The production of our Solid Surface collection and made-to-measure basins takes place in our advanced workshop in the Netherlands and the cabinets are made by our partner Warendorf Kitchen, which was founded by Miele in 1973. We definitely believe that these decades of combined experience will reflect in every single product we make.
COCOON’s team is a family. One big, diverse, and multidisciplinary team. It all starts with our architects and designers, but the collection could only be so successful with all the people in our team giving 100% commitment like our super skilled production employees, product engineers, project managers, sales-reps, exclusive showroom partners, photographers, the after sales service team and all other individuals helping us to be that brand to be proud of. Making good products and the world a little better, simply satisfies us and keeps us going.
