Representing what The Netherlands have to offer in innovation and design; part of the relation gift from the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP).
Being presented as “Contemporary Dutch design meets authentic handicraft” the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (BOIP) in The Hague asked us at Suit’d Suits to be part of their relation gift. Our brand and product range was fitting their selection of remarkable offered brands and products that have registrated one or more of their Intellectual Properties such as trademarks and designs at the BOIP.
Special about this request is that Suit’d Suits took the leadrole in presenting BOIP’s relations what The Netherlands stand for in authenticity – according to the client, as each product inside the giftset represents what kind of innovation each country from the BeNeLux has to offer.
Next to a booklet showcasing what each brand and product per country stands for, these three products are inside the gift box:
• An iconic notebook from Atoma representing Belgium;
• An universal poweroutletcover from ceramics with Delft Blue scenery from Suit’d Suits for The Netherlands;
• The all natural soapbar product BLEÍ VUM SÉI from national park Uewersauer for Luxembourg.
The first handover took place in July in The Hague, where an event was hosted by the BOIP. All of the invited guests received after the event this gift box.
The relation giftset that the BOIP developed for their special occasion contains products from brands that registered their intellectual property with the BOIP office. Being the owner of a registered Benelux trademark and offering unique and iconic products, Suit’d Suits was the ideal candidate.
The making of.
When the request from the BOIP came to our attention, the first thing that crossed our and their mind was to do something with Suit’d Suits’ most beloved Dutch crafting technique: Delft Blue. From the company its start back in 2012, offering this typical and truly handcreated craftsmanship inside our product ranges was our big dream. After years of development we nowadays manufacture our ceramic ranges in partnership with Dutch earthenware factory Royal Goedewaagen (est 1610). Together with them it became clear we wanted to add the Delft Blue technique onto the product model that the BOIP picked as favourite.
“What would be more appealing than a typical Dutch scenery on a Dutch designed innovative product, handmade in The Netherlands by Dutch companies?”
