In the early 90s Droog put Dutch contemporary design on the map. The idea was to go back to the essence of a product, play with it, add a shot of dry (droog) wit, use materials in an unexpected way, connect to history and archetypes. The results are fun and inspiring. Visit the showroom / shop / hotel (it has 1 room) and get a dose of contemporary Dutch design in the historic cloth makers guild building. Hanging in the cafe upstairs is a modern take on the Rembrandt ‘Staalmeisters’ portrait, originally painted to hang in the building.
Room Service (the cafe) is great for a light lunch. My salmon salad was excellent, delicately flavoured smoked salmon complemented with a herb salad, and lightly cooked sugar snaps and asparagus with bread on the side €8.50. I’ve often had coffee and cake here and it is always good with small bubble cappuccino the way is should be made.
