Forget about Scandinavian Design, forget about the Danish Hygge concept or the Swedish Lagom style. The Dutch are here, and we're all about Dutch Design and Gezelligheid. The English translation of gezelligheid is: cosiness, does that does not quite capture the full concept, although it's close. Gezelligheid is about comfort, warmth, feeling at home and the Dutch go to great lengths to make their home gezellig.
The Dutch are world famous for their design as well as for their flower business. Our designs are known to be functional, fun and colourful. Lowlands Design incorporates both: vases, bowls and floral vessels, combined with the power of beautiful Dutch Design. Dutch Design excels in its use of materials, colours and trend setting, state-of-the-art designs.
The Netherlands are well known as the Lowlands of Holland, as much of the nation is below sea level. In many languages the country is referred to as the low countries. In French it is: les Pays-Bas, in English: nether lands, and even in Dutch we often call ourselves: de lage landen. All meaning the low lands.
Lowlands Design represents strong Dutch brands that both make and design their own products. Businesses that care deeply for artisan crafts that form the core of their company and that get passed down generations. DutZ glassware is handmade and mouthblown by master glass-blowers in workshops in Eastern Europe.
Lowlands Design was established by Allon Leever who was born in Amsterdam and raised in the famous flower village of Aalsmeer, amidst the tulip fields and the biggest flower auction in the world. As a London dweller he has traded between the Netherlands and the UK for many years.

DutZ [Collection] - We get asked on many occasions if we can design something particular or special for a business. Or if we can produce a certain vase design in a particular corporate colour. We certainly can assist you with this. However glass blowing is artisan work and although our European workshops are very skilful glass there will be limitations in colours, shapes, designs, glass techniques etc. There will also be scale requirements and minimum orders quantities to consider.
Lowlands Design only works with well established popular Dutch brands in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The companies we work with care about the quality of their products, thoughtful design and proven business processes. In the past few years we have established ourselves as an excellent platform for Dutch brands in the UK. We have forged strong commercial connections with UK based Interior designers, hotels, florists, restaurants and retail.
