For those who seek to see culture local design shops are always interesting to visit and we found Groos Rotterdam. Design objects always reflect directions artists are thinking and most of the time every object has its own meaning and story behind its creation. Groos was founded in 2013 and its spacious, harmony reflecting interior is very welcoming to enter the store. The big windows are inviting those by-passes to look inside. For those who come to Rotterdam it is one of the store’s to shop for tasteful gift or objects to bring home with.
After Entering the store the light filled room opens up shelves with designer goods made locally. The main idea why this store is special and worth to mention is, that Groos sells only Rotterdam based designer products, artworks, design books and artsy bottled and canned local food. We found it very attractive space for the young Rotterdam designers to look at the partnership possibilities and visitors to explore these goods.
When inside the store it is possible to see an open space office with team working and it gives a fantastic atmosphere and at the same time movement, even desire to be a part of the process. “Groos set out to fill a gap between designer and consumer and to create a space where a selection of great products could be displayed and bought. We want to showcase the multidisciplinary talent which exists within this evolving city. Four years later we’ve grown from an idea to a high-end design shop.”
