Thomas Eyck publishes and distributes unique and delightful contemporary design products, taking great care in the materials and production techniques used as well as the skill and creativity of the designers. 'I believe that the union of design and material and a careful process of product development – from the first idea until the ‘ finishing touch’ – are very important.’
At Thomas Eyck, they believe materials should be exciting and able to tell a story. His love of materials came from working at Royal Tichelaar Makkum for seven years. The clay for the ceramics was dug just a few hundred metres away from the factory. He became fascinated with how this virtually worthless raw material could be processed, molded, and painted, to emerge as a valuable product; how with good design and the right craftspeople, you can make something very special out of nothing. "With an item like that, I feel the energy and time that was invested in making it."
