"Thomas Eyck publishes and distributes characteristic and exclusive contemporary design products. The company values the care and love for choosing materials to work with, its producers and production techniques as well as the skill and creativity of its designers. Thomas Eyck chooses the designers he collaborates with based on their handwriting: ‘I believe that the union of design and material and a careful process of product development – from the first idea until the ‘finishing touch’ – are very important.’ Yearly one or two designers are commissioned to design a series of products in a given material; the collection develops slowly. The on-going search for materials to discover has so far led to collections in (amongst others) pewter, flax and borosilicate glass. Thomas Eyck: ‘Finding the right material and craftsmen and producers who can work with that is just as important as the designers I work with."
