KnockOut is a design studio based in Arnhem, The Netherlands. Mick van der Pluijm founded it, after he graduated from ArtEZ Institute of Arts in 2012.
Our way of designing reflects our love of looking into the past. The past buries many visual aspects that can be used, renewed or transformed into a new design. Also playing with proportions is one of our favorite things. We prefer objects that are just a little bigger and more ponderous than usual. This often results in two different sorts of design. On one hand we make commercial products. These are generally made of ceramics and produced by ourselves. While on the other hand we also make unique showpieces for special events or exhibitions.
