Catalogtree is a multi-disciplinary design studio based in Arnhem (NL) and Berlin (DE). It was founded in 2001 by Daniel Gross and Joris Maltha, who met at Werkplaats Typografie. Nina Bender joined the studio in 2011. The studio works on commissioned and self-initiated projects. Highly interested in self-organising systems, they believe in ‘Form Equals Behaviour’. Experimental tool-making, programming, typography and the visualisation of quantitative data are part of their daily routine.
Recent endeavours include bin packing in book design, etching Chladni patterns and infographics for the International Architecture Biennale in Rotterdam. Daniel and Joris also teach at ArtEZ, the Institute of the Arts in Arnhem (NL) and lecture and lead workshops internationally.
