|Over the years products were made and developed for design brands like Moooi, Established & Sons, Skitsch, Gispen and works were commissioned by well known brands all over the world. Working for various companies led to new ways of working which required restructuring the company to a more project organised organisation on top of the productions side of it.In April 2012 Bas extended the collaboration between Maarten and Bas to other designers like Bertjan Pot and Fabien Dumas. So Den Herder Production House, DHPH, was born. DHPH is a co-creation partner for designers, architects, private clients, retailers and others.

DHPH has extended even more, designers and design collaborations like Max Lipsey, NIGHTSHOP and gt2P are making their designs happen together with DHPH. These designs, that match DHPH’s way of making things, are made by a team of craftsmen who can handle the complexity of the pieces well enough, to make them look simple again in the end. This company layout allows us to customize products besides the existing catalog pieces. DHPH does so for private clients as well as architects and interior projects either through our network of sales points and galleries as well as directly to clients with customized pieces or installations.
In the studio, situated in an old farm in Gewande near ’s-Hertogenbosch, DHPH makes unique products, mostly by hand. The possibilties for customs, projects and commisions are close to endless as the designers creativity is met by the craft of DHPH. The interior of the Groninger Museum restaurant by Maarten Baas is a good illustration. The designs, like Bertjan’s FRAME Moooi Award wining ‘Downstairs Chandelier’ are made in small editions with variations in the amount of steps or customized with an integrated light computer.
