Sustainable Dutch Design

Bastiaan Tolhuijs, Tolhuijs Design

The product must above all look beautiful. This way you automatically get the sustainable story with people in the living room. A sustainable 'Trojan Horse'

Tolhuijs designs via the upside-down world. We do not make a design and then add the materials as most designers do. What we have available is our starting point. We design from the material and the production possibilities, resulting in an interesting product for the customer. Tolhuijs' style is characterized as' simple, tough and honest '. The materials are visible, besides painting nothing is obscured.

Tolhuijs' style is characterized as' simple, tough and honest

At Tolhuijs, designs have a double meaning. Our SPOOL is not just another lamp on the market, our FENCY is not just any steel grid. Before products were placed in our range, they had a completely different purpose and were ready for scrap. We ensure that these materials can have a longer and better life.

Socially responsible production

The production of our range is done as much as possible in sheltered workshops and prisons. We want to give these people who are at a distance from the labor market an opportunity to reintegrate into our society, and thus creatively upgrade them in our society.

A good example is an ex-convict who we reintegrated into society. During his prison sentence he obtained his welding diploma - by producing, among other things, our table legs. Thanks to his welding diploma and many years of experience, he was able to work directly at one of our waste-steel suppliers. In this way, an ex-convict has the best chance of reintegration into society and we can reduce recidivism.

Waste material -> raw material

At Tolhuijs we want to show that waste can also be a raw material. For example, we try to make factories and consumers more aware that by being a bit creative you can still make a lot with a waste product. So much so that you want it as a design in your living room.
