Cooloo has over two decades of experience in bespoke projects, interior design and furniture production. In collaboration with architects and designers, Cooloo creates the most amazing interiors from planters, stairways and acoustics to soft seating and refurbishment. All by upcycling as much waste as possible, and ecological application on any shape or surface.

Red Bull Office
Casper Schwarz and his team made optimal use of Cooloo’s technical capabilities for the new Red Bull office in the Amsterdam Houthavens. Organic concrete elements and the imposing staircase are made of Econcrete. In addition, 180 acoustically absorbing slats were made using the RealMetalRust coating.
Botanic Tower Brussels
Our Econcrete creation at the Botanic Tower in Brussels. In collaboration with Nachtraven we created a pantry, as well as an integrated table containing plants, and several planters. With a concrete finishing made from waste materials, that can be used to give your indoor and outdoor spaces that cool and sustainable look.
Milan Design Week 2021 & 2022
We believe that beautiful, high-quality design and art can be created sustainably within a circular economy. Shaping a better world by thinking circular! With our collaborators and partners, we bring people together and inspire international companies and designers to close the circle. We showcased our circular design at several locations during Salone del Mobile – Milan Design Week. Want to read more?
University of Utrecht
Together with the University of Utrecht, Cooloo created this circular lounge. The interior was totally renovated with a combination of refurbished furniture from the Universities’ own stock, circular sofa’s from Cooloo’s collection and customized window benches. A perfect example of Cooloo’s circular thinking with the high-end reuse of existing furniture, sustainable and recycled materials and customization.
For the new circular TU Delft ‘Echo’ building by UNStudio, we refurbished old orange couches, from the WorkBrands stock, with a CoolLeather coating made of old SECRID wallets. As well as all their old lecture room seats with a new soft and comfortable layer. To make it fit perfectly in their new building where instead of the aimed 50%… 90% of the furniture is re-used.
During the 2020 corona pandemic, more and more elderly people became separated from their friends and family. When Cooloo was asked to contribute to the Quarantainer project, ‘Yes’ was the only option. For the containers, which provide a safe meeting place at healthcare institutions, old chairs and tables were refurbished with Econcrete as well as acoustic panels and lounge elements with CoolLeather and CoolCork coatings.
In this new icon of Groningen you will find Cooloo products in no less than 4 different places. Playful colors and soft finish in the youth departments are combined with sleek shapes and neutral colors at the Expoplein and the Forum shop. The design by NL Architects and the Munnik-de Jong-Steinhauser has won numerous awards since its opening.
