Vij5 is a Dutch design label with a collection of interior products, characterized by their minimalist aesthetic and functionality. Its founders, Arjan van Raadshooven and Anieke Branderhorst, designed the basis of their product collection and actively collaborate with young designers to continue expanding it. The brand has a very personal style and high quality standards because Arjan and Anieke manage all of the design processes that each product must go through. The right proportions and a balanced composition; the use of pure, honest materials; clear lines and fine details is what the designs all have in common.
The product collection is produced in small series by producers who are located near Vij5, whenever possible. When they cannot find a suitable partner within reach, they look further afield. Ultimately the quality and skills of a producer are of utmost importance to them. Once production starts, the founders maintain a close connection with their producers throughout the process, creating the ultimate desired quality in their product.
