    The oldest company in the Netherlands, Royal Tichelaar Makkum, was founded over 430 years ago. But about twelve years ago, it almost had to close its doors forever. There was no more demand for its traditional tiles and pottery. But then Jan Tichelaar found a way to reshape the company for the 21st century. He offered the expertise in craftsmanship to top designers and architects and they jumped right on it.

    Many designers were eager to use the company’s traditional techniques in new ways. Fashion designer Alexander van Slobbe created ceramic pearls for his necklaces. Hella Jongerius created the b-set, where every cup or plate is different, depending on its place in the oven.

    In the beginning of the nineties, a group of young dutch designers was presented in Milaan under the name of DROOG. Their designs were immediately recognized as something new. Anti-glamour, sober yet funny, and all telling a story or commenting on society. For a while, DROOG design even became synonymous with dutch design. Founders of this collective are Gijs Bakker and Renny Ramakers.

    Many of the early DROOG designs found their way to galleries and museums all over the world. They became icons, sometimes crossing the line between art and design. One of the very first to acquire them was the museum of modern art in New York.

    Since the beginning, Droog has evolved. It has become more of a thinktank under the name of drooglab, which aims to detect global trends in design, and then reflect on those trends from a new perspective.

    Dutch Profiles is a series of short documentaries about architects and graphic, product and fashion designers in the Netherlands, commissioned by DutchDFA.

Dutch Profiles includes interviews with, among others: MVRDV, 2012 Architects, Jurgen Bey, Claudy Jongstra, Gerard Unger, Paul Mijksenaar, Marlies Dekkers, Alexander van Slobbe and G-Star.

    In 2002, Maarten Baas graduated with Smoke at the famous Design Academy in Eindhoven. Smoke is a series in which design classics are scorched with a blow torch and then sealed with epoxy – a project which gained him worldwide attention.

    His studio is based in a farm in the South of Holland where he works with a small group of international craftsmen – a talented and diverse community in which each member contributes something unique to the final product.

    In 2009, Baas was named Designer of the Year at Design Miami. To Baas’s great satisfaction, it was precisely this personal, small-scale and collaborative approach which the jury applauded.

    In Milan in 2009, Baas presented his project Real Time: a series of videos depicting hyper-physical representations of time. The project questions our ambiguous relationship with time in our profoundly temporal world.

    Jurgen Bey is a visionary designer who likes to take things to the next level. Bey is famous for his tree truck bench, with classical chair backs cast in bronze, his Light Shade Shade, a mirror lamp that reflects its surroundings during the day, and reveals a chandelier within once it’s lit, and his Ear Chairs, big armchairs with giant ears that allow people to have private conversations in public spaces.

    With Prooff- which stands for Progressive Office, Bey explores new ways of working together. Work nowadays is too focused on making money alone, while, according to the designer, the emphasis should be on sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas. Part of Prooff is the slow car, now still a prototype. When the landscape in which we work is transformed into a collective campus, the slow car will be the mobile office in which we travel.

    Jurgen Bey takes his time to observe our actions and to discover intrinsic qualities in things that are often overlooked. For this, he ventures beyond the ordinary and creates his own original path. A work ethic he would like to see companies adopt as well.
