CREATE A SPACE THAT REFLECT YOUR PERSONALITY
Your home is the greatest reflection of who you are. It's your sanctuary. It is the one place where you can walk in, sit down, and be yourself.
At TOO DESIGNS we create innovative minimal art and clocks for modern interiors. With our custom pieces you can express your individual style and allow your home to tell the story of who you are.
TOO Designs is the brainchild of architect couple, Sureen and Thomas Gouws. We aim to involve the customer in the creative process and leave room for customization. We also emphasise the “play” element in our products.
Our signature product, TOO D Magnetic Wall art, allows you to choose your own colour palette and create your own compositions. You can also change it as often as you want. Other products include our most popular TOO-do Whiteboard clock, TOO Tone & Minimal Clocks and a gift range.
All products are locally designed and made in Melbourne, Australia.

BEHIND THE BRAND
Before migrating to Australia in 2018 and settling on the Mornington Peninsula, we've had our own architecture practice for 17 years, based in Pretoria, South Africa. When we started TOO in April 2019, we shifted our focus from architecture to art and design, which has always been a great passion for us both. Our architectural roots however greatly influenced the brand's aesthetic and our design approach.
As residential architects designing our clients interiors we constantly searched for modern geometric art, but usually struggled to find it in the right colour schemes, compositions, or at affordable prices. That sparked the idea of creating a customisable art system where you can change your artwork to your liking and colour preferences.

A question we get asked a lot...
WHY THE TWO DOTS?
When we designed TOO D MAGNETIC ART a key challenge was the finish of the magnetic art pieces. It had to be hardwearing, cost effective and available in a large selection of colours. Powder coating was the perfect choice, but required the steel plates to have suspension holes for the application process. We decided to turn this seemingly unfortunate functional requirement into a feature, using two holes instead of just one. This became a distinct part of our branding and part of our logo for TOO (T:)
