Marie-Louise Groot Kormelink:
Although she loved drawing and design since she was a kid, Marie-Louise (1963) choose for a study in profession- and career-counselling. She worked in commercial career-counselling for many years. She came up with the idea of designing her own cabinets, when she was not able to find furniture for her children that she liked and that could meet her standards. However, it was only when her children became older, she decided to work out her ideas for the cabinet series and take into production. In 2004 the designs were first manufactured. Nowadays the Amsterdam series is sold in 18 countries and is exposed at the Philadelphia Museum of Art as one of the best designs for children in the past decades.
