“Focusing on possibilities rather than restrictions, enabled us to create these pieces of furniture. Together we develop this beautiful collection.”
Don Zweedijk

About

One day, out of curiosity, Don Zweedijk entered Het Malie Gilde. He already noticed the place before and wondered what went on inside. It turned out to be a sheltered metal workshop, where anyone with poor job prospects can learn the craft of metalworking. After a nice conversation and a small tour of the premises, he decided to join as a volunteer. He was pleasantly surprised by the knowledge and technical skills of the men who worked there. Through working together and crafting together, a unique collaboration arose. This collaboration ultimately led to the Possibility Collection.

The collection evolved out of looking at possibilities and not at limitations. The ultimate goal is to challenge the maker of Het Malie Gilde and increase his chances of obtaining a permanent, paid job. For this, a manufacturing process has been developed that will stimulate him and even surprise him with his own abilities. This way, the manufacturing process is also a learning process that centralizes the maker’s development. This is how the men of Het Malie Gilde were challenged to work very accurately and weld flawlessly. As such, the creation- and learning process interlocked perfectly. The first piece of furniture from the collection was a cabinet, where wood and metal became one in their purest form.

Development of the maker

Part of the revenue from each sold cabinet will go to the maker. This way, he is introduced to the client in a laid-back manner and it is ensured that he receives the recognition he deserves from the purchaser. Moreover, the maker will build up a portfolio, existing of pictures from the furniture he manufactured.
The Possibility Collection is born: behold a part of the result.
Together we build this furniture collection and carry the
responsibility for a high quality product. This initiative owes its existence to a special collaboration with Het Malie Gilde.
