“Collaboration for innovation “ We have established collaborations between designers and manufacturers for a series of innovative and sustainable interior objects.  

LABEL/BREED is an initiative focused on the development of innovative interior objects by establishing collaborations between designers and manufacturers. Our mission is to create opportunities for designers and manufacturers to connect and get the most out of their combined efforts. Throughout the process we consult directly with the designer and manufacturer to ensure that the collaboration is fruitful and mutually beneficial and will result in products of the highest possible standard.

Stijn Roodnat, director of the Label, has a passion for the way things are made and believes that the manufacturing industry has the ability to create beautiful things with the help of talented designers for a better world.
