Elevating Wellbeing Through Harmonious Brand and Interior Design

Research, Branding & Interior Design
We explore and develop spaces and brands that enhance wellbeing and tranquility to support wellbeing in experimental environments and everyday places.

As a multidisciplinary design studio we collaborate, with scientists, designers, artists, architects, engineers and everyone that studies the frames of the built environment and beyond.
Life is in constant motion, always evolving. Buildings, like us, reflect this dynamic nature. At Instil, we engineer designs that facilitate the interaction between these living spaces and the individuals who inhabit them.

Elevating Wellbeing Through Harmonious Brand and Interior Design

At Instil Collective, we envision a fusion of design and wellbeing that redefines spaces and brands. Our diverse team, driven by innovation and empathy, creates environments that go beyond aesthetics. With backgrounds ranging from interior architecture, digital innovation to anthropology, we forge connections between design, human behavior, and wellbeing.

Led by Sander's digital innovation and Ellen's healing insights, we craft spaces that resonate on multiple levels. Janne infuses ancient wisdom into modern concepts, while Sacha's art direction adds layers of thoughtful beauty. Marijne's architectural precision ensures designs that inspire and nurture.

Through literature research and collaboration with experts from various fields, we're pushing design boundaries. Our designs tell stories, evoke emotions, and foster connections, nurturing a sense of wellbeing that's tangible. Instil Collective is where purposeful design meets holistic living.

Marijne Vogel

Interior Architecture
When Marijne started working as a Junior Interior Architect she quickly became aware that most design firms solely focussed on creating beauty, often replicating designs for various projects to save time.This drove her to start her own company a few years later, where she began to research the human connection to architecture & design. By virtue of researching scientific papers, books and works of fellow architects she has been able to produce work that is tailored to her clients and their specific needs. Marijne joined Instil Collective to work alongside likeminded talented creatives / researchers from a range of industries. This in turn expands and challenges her personal knowledge and viewpoints.Marijne’s role at Instil is defined by her Interior Architecture background. She works alongside Janne to translate the research component into spatial designs. Once the conceptual work is finalized, Marijne focuses on the technical development of the project.
