Thomas Eyck, The Great Dutch Curator

April 5, 2012

Dutch design impresario Thomas Eyck describes himself as a "publisher and distributor of characteristic and exclusive contemporary design products."

A champion of Dutch design, Eyck has succeeded in showcasing the country's traditional crafts through his annual commissioning of designers. His genius lies in taking traditional materials used throughout the Netherlands' history (flax, pewter, and willow for example) and turning them over to designers to create contemporary designs. Eyck, who is also the curator of design for the Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen, has worked with the likes of Christien Meindertsma, Scholten & Baijings, Studio Job, and Aldo Bakker. For more information on Eyck and his designs or to purchase, go to Thomas Eyck.
