Suit’d Suits takes tile models into production.
From september 2017 onwards Dutch design brand and production company Suit’d® Suits joint forces with ceramic factory Royal Goedewaagen (est. 1610) and Albarello tile factory & atelier (est. 1995). Dutch tile factory Albarello manufactures traditional crafted tiles in various styles. From start till finish each tile is made at their own factory in Frisia (in Dutch: Friesland). Royal Goedewaagen is one of the oldest ceramic factories from Europe. They still make the same crafted ceramics as 400 years ago, although they nowadays combine the original craftsmanship with the most modern designtechniques.
Strong collaborations, international focus.
With these collaborations a new application in Suit’d® Suits its ranges soon was created. Under this distinctive brand name (in English: Suited Suits) the company Suit’d Suits creates since 2012 market specific products. With an unique approach it designs and co-produces decorative frame coverings for build-in wiring accessories, to make them much more appealing in general and stylable with the rest of the interior. For this purpose the company partners with high-end production companies from the international making industry, in order to achieve its bold collection of materials and models that give shape to the Suit’d® Suits product ranges. Accompanied by the collaboration with Hager, a leading electro-technical manufacturer, all Suit’d® Suits frames fit to the berker designs from Hager its wiring accessories ranges.
Either as freestanding covering frame or as part from the wall.
The making process from the ceramic tile shaped frame coverings starts at the factory from Royal Goedewaagen. Here the special models are traditionally hand crafted and made ready for the finishing touches. These ‘touches’ can be applied on several ways; Both Royal Goedewaagen and Albarello possess highly specialised skills for traditional fully hand painted ‘Gouds Plateel’ or original genuine Delft Blue decorations. Tile factory Albarello in Frisia can add their special glazings to the Suit’d® Suits products that matches their wall tile collections. In this way whole walls can be delivered where the energy outputs (the sockets, switches, et cetera) are framed within the tiled wall, instead breaking with the global design and material use. Also entire walls can be fully decorated, possible in many stylings and techniques as real tailor-made craftsmanship.
Suit’d® Suits Frame Models R.3 / R.3+ are available in two tile sizes: 100 x 100 x 11 millimeter, and 130 x 130 x 11 millimeter. Complementary fitting wall tiles from Albarello are available too, matching the Frame Models with great charm, where the hand made character is leading in the appearance.
Each Suit’d® Suits Frame Model is pre-assembled with an inner plastic component, officially recognized by Hager, and combinable with build-in wiring accessories from the berker R-design.
