Story

We Smell The Rain is an Amsterdam-based design studio creating unique ways to bring nature indoors. Our focus is on bridging the gap between nature and the city. Our aesthetic is clean and minimal with an emphasis on quality materials, detailed finishing and craftsmanship. 

We design and create elegant innovative installations and products which takes the natural world as a starting point. Influenced by Japanese, Scandinavian and Mid-century design principles, WSTR celebrates the simplicity and integrity of natural materials and processes.

Established by Kim Band, We Smell The Rain was born out of a desire to connect back to nature. Working as a creative for some of the world’s most recognisable brands, Kim discovered that city living left her craving the the wild beauty her childhood homes of South Africa and New Zealand.

Bringing together over a decade of Kim's professional experience in Creative Direction, Art Direction, Design and Branding for the likes of Harrods, Adidas and G-Star RAW, as well as fashion boutiques and creative start ups, We Smell The Rain came into life in 2015.
