Like so many good ideas, the idea was born because something was missing. The founder was not able to find the ultimate storage she was looking for so she decided to create and realised her own idea. A "Kast van een Huis".
Marie-Louise Groot Kormelink designed a series of cabinets for her children that would survive the baby, the toddler and the pre-school phase.
2013 The Amsterdam Series became a part of the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and was elected and exposed as one of the best designs for children in the past few centuries. More design awards followed later.
