In today’s modern world, progress is forever at odds with nature. At a time when society is constantly inundated with technological advancements, bridging the gap between sustainability and rapid development is a Herculean task. As our materialistic values are admittedly slow to change, the key is striking a balance between conservation and consumption. Rising to the challenge is TWO–O.
As creative entrepreneurs with a conscience, Rodny Heemskerk and Bob Koning launched TWO–O in July 2011. At their studio in Amsterdam, the pair designs an ever- expanding range of stylish accessories –from bicycle crates and iPhone cases to cufflinks and bar blades– all made from recycled wood. Each piece is a unique expression of the material’s elegance and durability, blending natural beauty with timeless design.
With their hands-on mentality and a critical eye for detail, TWO–O aims to raise consumer awareness through the development of sustainable products. Their latest project –sleek, wooden sunglasses– seeks to inspire like-minded, eco-conscious individuals to make green choices. Coupled with their commitment to craftsmanship, TWO–O is a brand that goes against the grain. ✌
