royal leerdam crystal (glassware), koninklijke van kempen & begeer (cutlery/table accessories) and the audax textile museum, tilburg (table linen) collaborated to produce their designs. all three partners come from a long tradition of artisan production and they regularly work in conjunction with a select group of designers from the netherlands and beyond. the crockery was developed at cor unum and the european ceramic workcentre (EKWC) in den bosch.
