Marcel Vermeulen - Managing Director Kvadrat Benelux

Marcel Vermeulen was one of the founders of GLUE. During a dinner at De Plantage, a plan was forged, which led, among other things, to Kvadrat opening its doors during the event, showing the latest collection of textiles from design agency RAW COLOR.

Michel Troost - owner Kasstoor

Guess who’s back? GLUE is a good momentum to show that Kasstoor has resurfaced. With a new logo, a new website, and a new collection that is indebted to the surprising high-end profile of yesteryear. For a year now, Kasstoor – formerly De Kasstoor & Wonen 2000 – has had a new owner: Michel Troost. We know him as the managing director of Vitra Netherlands, where he worked for ten years, and in recent years as the managing director of Montis.

Ton Minkels & Rob Cornelissen - brand representatives of Eikelenboom and Arper at Design Post Amsterdam

In a beautiful area of Amsterdam, at the north end of Cruquiuseiland, the office of Design Post Amsterdam offers a view of the glistening water with its houseboats and the light shining through the many windows of the two floors of this interior collective. In the showroom, Design Post Amsterdam presents renowned brands such as Arco, Arper, Danskina, Montis, Palau, Kvadrat, and Eikelenboom, which have an area of 1500 square meters to show their collections together. ‘Most people know us, but not our location.’ Time to change that..

Ruud van Oosterhout - designer at rvodesign

Not only because it is the most beautiful location you can imagine in Amsterdam, but also because Ruud van Oosterhout has settled there with his studio and showroom: rvodesign. The designer is displaying stylish collections in the listed building right next to the Rijksmuseum.

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

The Stedelijk Museum was founded in 1874 by a group of private citizens in Amsterdam, led by C.P. van Eeghen, who donated funds and their art collections to establish a museum in the capital of the Netherlands that would be devoted to modern art. The collection, housed at first at the Rijksmuseum, was moved in 1895 into the Museum’s own building, designed by A.W. Weissman.
