KCCM was founded by Krijn Christiaansen (1978) and Cathelijne Montens (1978). The work of these two young Dutch designers explores the ways public spaces and landscapes are made, used, lived in, transformed and shaped by people. Their research and design interventions emanate from their home and studio in Noordwijkerhout, the Netherlands to global locations such as Serbia, Romania, Indonesia, Hungary, Japan, and most recently, to the Portrait Society Gallery in the USA. They teach design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague.
