Today is the day to give our fathers some extra love and appreciation. On this special day for all fathers, we celebrate and cherish the wonderful connection between them and their children.
For this occasion, we went to visit our good friend Robin Sluijzer. He is a father of a beautiful girl and a new born boy. Besides being a father, Robin Sluijzer is an entrepreneur of his own multidisciplinary design studio in the heart of the Jordaan. He established his own studio 20 years ago after starting his career as a furniture maker. Studio Sluijzer's designs have a character of their own: tough, stylish and in combination with that they radiate peace and serenity. Besides many other projects, Robin also did the design of our stores. We asked Robin what fatherhood means to him.
"I've had butterflies in my stomach for three years now, but at the same time, it makes me very vulnerable. That is sometimes terrifying. Life shifts when you have a child, you live for your children instead of for yourself and that drive in everything is much greater. I never needed children, but these two give colour to every day and I am honoured to be their father."
We wish you a beautiful Father’s day.
