King Kongs is an Interior Design Agency mainly focused on hospitality design but doesn’t avoid to tackle any other creative requests or indecent proposals. King Kongs roughly embraces new creative missions to pursue a variety of popping end results.
It’s all about the experience! ..which is why it’s not just the big stuff that counts for us. Whether an interior design is extremely straightforward, eccentric or just a wall of simultaneous piled bricks: from the first spark we’ll lead the way for our clients. From the front to the back, from the beginning ‘till the end: we’ll guard the identity and continuously watch over quality. We’ll shape their thoughts and wishes.
From hotel to (pop-up) restaurant, from office to retail, from branding to concept stores and from heritage to modern. We take our jobs seriously, there’s lots of knowledge under our roof and we believe in what we add to the world. It’s what people sense that counts, what makes people feel inspired and what makes people smile.
The serious part is not to take it too seriously. The technical work is not what makes the difference, that’s the easy part: it’s just necessary, we’ll fix that anyway. But this is not what makes your interior exceptional. What makes the difference, that what you can’t define, is what we think of. The image we create, what’s visible, is the essence. We create a relation between our clients and the story they want to tell.

King Kongs is..?
King Kongs is opinionated, not mainstream, produces a distinct identity and is not for the weak-hearted.
King Kongs loves you and we believe that you love King Kongs. We are enthusiastic and inspired, we are accurate, contemporary and up to date. We are not the YES-man and also no-one under our roof suffers from YES-ism. In other words: We wear our hearts upon our sleeves.
We are pioneers, but prefer Apple. We are free - only for the good cause - we can sometimes be a pain in the ass, we are award winners, we are tattooed, we fight for the best results while we are your best friends and the black sheep.
And you want to quote WHO?
I don’t know, I just remembered what he said: The end-result is our best argument.
Where are you?
King Kongs is based in the Designcapital of the world, in The Netherlands of course. The centre of Eindhoven is our point of departion. But.. we’ll make a home and an office anywhere we work. We have pop-up offices all over the world like Cancun, Berlin, Antwerp, Madrid, Abu Dhabi, New York & Beijing and somewhere in the pacific. And if you’re willing to travel, give us a call, we’ll show you our latest work. (If you want to stay in your lazy chair with some salty popcorn, you can have a look on Behance… You’ll be wired with our work online.)
The name King Kongs goes round for approximately 2 years, yet we are a generously well-endowed team with decades of experience in various other agencies. In case you’re wondering: we’ll stay for ever and ever ever and ever ever ever.
Our team contains a mixture of creative outbursts and lots of experience. Some of our core oompa loompas are Mehdi le Mair, Alumnus from Royal Academy of Arts in Antwerp and so is Karlien Wiechert. Marthe Biezen graduated with distinction from the Design Academy Eindhoven and Martijn Gosen is a very capable person who does tricks with all kinds of exquisite business stuff. Then there’s Hanneke Rombouts, alumnus from Thomas More in Mechelen and Pimm Gregoire who’s also a post graduate from the Design Academy Eindhoven. Additionally, we have a nice set of interns backing up our lives whom have their roots at Mechelen, St. Lucas, Design Academy and other intriguing institutes.
Furthermore we work with illustrators and graphic-geeks, tech-nerds, artists, golfers, wakeboarders, surf girls, old and wise people, annoying people, punkers, glam-rockers, posh, stockbrokers, rainbow warriors, kids and animals (especially gorillas).
King Kongs XL?
We don’t believe in a large corporate bureaucratic company, no closed office or bubble. We’re a team of 8 with whom we want to feel plugged in, on top of everything. We don’t want to become the looks of King Kong, we want to be King Kong. When King Kong lived on an Island, he was doing fine. As soon as he was drawn to the city, things went the opposite. We would like to see ourselves as the peaceful hippies on the island spreading our creativity. King Kong was a fun playful monkey. We want to keep playing and see the entire world as our playground.

What’s in a name?
It’s about that scary hairy animal with a big mouth and a small heart whom everybody knows and is capable of pronouncing his name. King Kong cannot help his size or the fact that he’s a gorilla, he mainly just wants to protect a certain beauty. King Kong is a dreamer who follows his intuition - he is in love - while others can see this as a threat or danger.
So to enter the heart of this story: The only thing we’re doing is create beauty and protect that beauty. With our eye for detail and the delicate things in life. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, don’t judge by the name or appearances: we look and set our view, what’s the story behind. We think in layers. Our clients know we look further than the border, which is also what they want and ask from us. Not just the looks, but the full story: a concept and background.
Can anyone get in touch?
Of course anyone can! Just as long as you are not a complete asshole.. (or your name is Donald Trump) If you are, we’ll use our magic skills and turn you into someone nice.
Don’t hesitate, give us a call at 0031 40 8433 633
