About the company
Company Midnight was founded in 2015 under the non-profit organisation ShakeThat and is a collaboration be-tween Simone Scaini and Joris Verbeeren.

Joris is an autodidact, lover of slapstick, manipulation with everyday objects and the night… Simone is neurotic, self-taught and “Mad Professor”. Chauvinist regarding food and drinks, and also possessed by the night…
