The company

Math and Marie-France Meertens founded Clou in 1992. Over the following decades, the small family business grew into a brand known throughout the Netherlands and the world over – as an importer and wholesaler, but more importantly, as a developer and producer of designer products under its own brand.

Today, Clou’s striking designs, innovative use of materials, and sturdy character are valued by product users and internationally renowned design institutes alike.

Design

Our team in Nuth in the Dutch province of South Limburg is hard at work improving, rejuvenating, and refining our range of designer products. Under the leadership of Math and Marie-France, Clou works closely with renowned Dutch and international designers to produce designer bathroom and toilet products in-house, under their own brand. This results in a balanced collection that exudes our passion for beauty, innovation, and function. Minimalistic, exclusive, stately or intimate: whatever character you are aiming for, Clou would be happy to provide the inspiration.

Quality

Innovating while delivering top design and quality at an affordable price. This isn’t an easy task, but at Clou, it’s what we do.

Our product development team ensures that our products are always contemporary in design terms and state of the art in technical terms. Leading designers harness their design qualities, professional expertise, and knowledge of materials to give the perfect shape to Clou’s designer products. We also manage our entire production process to perfection, and no product is really finished without the personal touch of Math and Marie-France Meertens.

Team

A focus on service, expertise, and enthusiasm characterize our team and the service we provide. We simply want to be your first choice, and to remain your first choice before and during the purchase process, and long afterwards. We’re here to help.

Externe Designers

At Clou, we wouldn’t be where we are without our external designers. They have designed some of our most iconic series and products, which, even years after their release, are still as impressive and successful as they were when introduced.

René holten

René Holten (1961) studied at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design and at Eindhoven’s Design Academy. He worked for Wiel Arets Architects, but in 1993 decided to concentrate on product design and set up René Holten Industrial Design. His focus lies in the furniture and sanitary sectors, and his designs have won many prizes. Holten is famed for his high-quality products: elegant, timeless, and innovative. Environmentally-friendly production forms the basis for his work.

Peter littmann

Peter Littmann (1968) graduated in product design from Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Sittard in 1997. After gaining work experience at an interior design firm and subsequently at an architectural firm, he set up his own interior design and product design firm in 2003: Interne Zaken. Peter Littman is the designer of the Match Me series that we introduced in 2011.
