We're open!

All week at Vij5 Showroom | Hallenweg

We provide insight into the composition and origin of the Vij5 collection. With this openness we connect to a new trend where transparency in the chain is taken for granted.

When you buy something, you make a decision making you as a consumer part of a chain. But what exactly do these chains look like? And which chains do you want to be part of?

At Vij5 we think it is important that you make a conscious decision when you buy our products. You could see it as a logical continuation of the considerations we have made fรณr you when designing, developing and creating the Vij5 collection.

By communicating openly and transparently about our products, we would like to give insight into the choices we have made. For example, we show where our raw materials come from or how and why we work together with designers, producers and suppliers. Next, you can base your personal decisions on this information.

With this openness we like to connect to a new trend where transparency in the chain is taken for granted. We do not change the way we work, but we do change our language.

During the DDW we will not only open our communication, but also our new showroom where we proudly exhibit a number of new products in the Vij5 collection. As a visitor you are also welcome in our adjacent workshop where we provide insight into the composition and origin of our collection.

Vij5

Vij5 is represented by initiators Arjan van Raadshooven and Anieke Branderhorst. Immediately after graduating, they founded design label Vij5 in order to bring their own designs onto the market. Their most famous design is the FlexVase, for which they won a Dutch Design Award in 2009.

Curated by Arjan and Anieke, the Vij5 collection expands every year through collaborations between Vij5 and external designers. This makes the Vij5 collection personal and exceptional.
