About us

Robuust Amsterdam is a young Dutch interior label creating timeless essentials for minimalist living and home comfort. We design aesthetic and functional interior objects with uncompromising quality, using environmentally responsible materials and all made locally in the Netherlands.

Origin
Robuust Amsterdam was founded in 2018 by Industrial Designers Job Althof and Niek Sanders who share a passion for creating beautiful things. Their aspiration for each object they design is to convey a feeling of comfort and charm. This philosophy has now evolved into a multi-disciplinary interior label with a vibrant team of enthusiasts.

Philosophy
We believe that being surrounded only by essentials that you really like or need, allows you to enjoy your home with a sense of balance and calm. Reinforcing an awareness that you can feel good and live carefree with only a little. Buying fewer things allows you to invest more in the essentials that bring this feeling of satisfaction, and gives the freedom to be more mindful of the future of our society and planet. The greater the quality of products, the longer their lifetime of benefit to us. We try to reflect this feeling of minimalism in our designs through simple geometric shapes, long lasting materials and a timeless presence.

Mission
Our mission is to design quality products that will last for generations. We carefully consider packaging, maintenance, replaceable parts and product recycling, as we always work to extend the lifetime of each product. We are inspired by both the old and the new; analogue traditions and digital technologies. We collaborate with the best sustainable and energy self-sufficient producers in the Netherlands, who prioritize the reuse of resources such as heat and water during production. Something to be proud of.
