Established in The Netherlands in 1993 by Jan te Lintelo, Linteloo brings together international designers and European craftsmen to create contemporary furniture that lasts for years. The first collection showed new designs by promising young designers such as Edward van Vliet, Roderick Vos and Roland Costeris; Jan won the prestigious Mobilia award in 1994 for his initiative. At the same time, Dutch design was becoming popular worldwide, but Linteloo wanted to go further and in 1995 launched now famous "feel-good factor."
