With a carpentry background under his belt and over a decade's worth of experience in parametric design with top architecture firms including Wilkinson Eyre and Zaha Hadid Architects, Camiel saw an opportunity to make life easier for people with the same needs.
He brought his idea to Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and working with a group of final year students, CUSTO was born.
