Back to the Roots, Dutch craftsmanship from Rotterdam

During the twenties of last century, Mr. Kurt Thamer from Hamburg, Germany, established the present company at the Spaanse bocht in Rotterdam. The later co-owners, the Herrewijn family, had their origins in Rotterdam too. Rotterdam and its energy have for ages been synonymous with Hermeta and the people working there. Here, craftsmanship, creativity and design go hand in hand.


The new design label House of Hermeta Holland has the new colour Rotterdam 1920, which is inspired by its Rotterdam background and its special craft. The colour, still in the experimental stages, has properties of steel and greyish blue. Just like the colour New Amsterdam, many different aspects of its development will be shown at Object Rotterdam.
