Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum
Koninklijke Tichelaar Makkum (Royal Tichelaar Makkum, est. 1572) is the oldest company in the Netherlands and has worldwide recognition in the field of ceramics. Over the centuries the company has accumulated a priceless reservoir of knowledge and skill.
These qualities have a great attraction for contemporary architects, artists and designers, and with them Tichelaar seeks out possible new uses and areas of application. In addition to this customised work, Tichelaar is also developing an expanding range of its own ceramic products for the building industry, particularly façade cladding and interior applications. In addition to this they continue to produce their renowned traditional decorative earthenware and tiles on request. A number of pieces in the design collection by contemporary designers, such as Hella Jongerius, Jurgen Bey and Studio Job, have become icons in the history of Dutch design.
