Our story

AT DROSSELMEYER WE DON´T SIMPLY DESIGN OBJECTS, WE INVENT AND ENGINEER PRODUCTS THAT LAST FOR GENERATIONS.

drosselmeyer is born

Drosselmeyer’s founder and innovator Erik von Schoultz was confounded by how difficult it can be to use a traditional nutcracker; an incredible amount of power is needed and it’s a messy mission. After months in the toolshop Drosselmeyer’s first product, our award-winning Nutcracker, reached the market. With a market stretching over 19 countries we are incredibly proud of our bestseller.
What started out with cracking a single nut kickstarted a process that today make up the foundation of Drosselmeyer’s Design Studio.

Philosophy of Design

The design philosophy of Drosselmeyer is based on the simple idea of looking at design and function as two equally important components of a product.

Improving at
every level

When we look at a household product we see it as a challenge to lengthen the products durability and a chance to improve the usability of a product that might have been slightly neglected.

Beauty meets function

We don’t only try to find ways of enhancing the user experience by making the product easier to use; We also aim to create a beautiful item you don’t have to hide away in your kitchen.

The select few

With a process focused on allowing the design to develop organically, we test each prototype thoroughly before we pick what we are truly proud off and send it off to production. Today we offer a handful of products that have passed every stage in our long, rigorous design and testing procedures
