Let's face it — who has time to find the perfect shelf? It may not even exist! That's what CUSTO founder, Dutch designer Camiel Weijenberg found out when he tried to find a wardrobe for his wife.

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.
Founder and Director of WEIJENBERG, started his working career as a carpenter to later grown and develop to register as an architect in the Netherlands, Camiel was a scholar of the Architecture Association (AA) London graduating with distinction.
