We create beautiful, functional
everyday tools for your home.
Our vision is a world where products, once
again, are created to last for generations.
Erik always dreamt of being an inventor. At 9 he started his first clay-car design company, at 13 he created his first attempt at a commercial product. By the year 2000 the dream became reality. Over time Erik developed an ingenious design process based on the assumption that a simple solution, requiring the least amount of parts, is always the best. This led to the Magical Three Philosophy. A solution is attempted using only one part, then another and finally a third is added. At three parts the magic happens with an exponential rise in simple complexity! If an energetic spring action can be included, the deal is done.
Making things by hand and exploring the relationship between body and tool is essential to Erik’s design process. This is an intricate and painstaking process but it creates unique products with extra-ordinary functionality vastly different from others on the market.
Erik’s design process allows him to stay true to his belief that if he can’t make it better he won’t make it at all.
At Drosselmeyer we know that quality and functionality is as important as style. It’s part of our design DNA to create technically superior and durable products that can be inherited for generations.
The first drosselmeyer, the nutcracker, was an immediate success, winning international design and best-in-test awards and is proudly displayed in the Swedish National Museumspermanent design exhibition.
Our design philosophy is simple “if we can’t make it better
we don’t make it at all”.
Everything we produce is beautifully considered, crafted and engineered because a Drosselmeyer product is made to last forever.
