Besides being brothers Merijn & Jurriaan Hos work together as an artistic duo creating motion and installation work for clients and institutions.

Where Merijn's talent lies in Illustration and Visual Art, Jurriaan is an experienced Motion and Interaction Designer. This is the place where we feature our collaborative work and shared vision.
            Recurring themes in our work are melancholy and a longing for the past combined with a great curiosity about the future. These themes are also reflected in the way we work,  we often combine analog and digital techniques. We are always curious about new technology and often find that our most exciting work is the result of experimentation and working in uncharted territory.

Selected clients include: Adobe, Apple, Aspesi, Atmos Magazine, Bose, Down The Rabbit Hole Festival, Diptique, Disney, Dolby, Dropbox, Glossier, Google, The Guardian, Hermès, Ittala, Johnnie Walker, Kinfolk Magazine, Mercedes Benz, MIT, Netflix, Nickelodeon, Nike, New York Times, The New Yorker, Pepsi, Sonos & Wired.

Down The Rabbit Hole - For the 2022 Campaign video for Down The Rabbit Hole festival we took inspiration from the sculpture series that Merijn made earlier in the year. The sculpture work reflects on how positive and the negative events keep each other in balance. In the video we break the circle by bringing the sculptures to life in an uplifting way. This campaign was nominated for the 2022 Dutch Design Award in the Communication category. Down The Rabbit Hole

A Place So Far, A Place So Near, A Place So Sweet, A Place So Dear.
    Four titles that together form a short poem, reflecting the concept behind this VR installation. An interactive experience that allows for multiple visitors at once to influence the virtual space they're in by using their hands. Touching the magical sphere in the center of the installation takes the visitors on a melancholic and futuristic journey through an endless variety of worlds, from molecular fields to the deepest end of the universe.

Soft Landing - For the 2019 STRP Biennale in Eindhoven we were commissioned by director Ton van Gool to create an installation piece that reflects our gradient and grain work. It was our intention to make an analogue work but that still has a very digital feel to it. Three circles of transparent colored curtains slowly moved in opposite directions of one of another while light and sound circled around them. Visitors were invited to enter the installation and find their way through the color spectrum in a journey from dark to light to arrive in the core where they found a place of calm
