Merzbau is a collaborative partnership of two separate businesses; one based in The Netherlands headed by Ronnie Nienhuis and one based in The United Kingdom headed by Martin Rivers. Merzbau enables both businesses to present unique items of furniture, lighting and decorative arts representative of the development of twentieth century modernism. The collection features established European designers, artists or official manufacturers as well items which are appealing simply because of their beauty or function. Items are presented in original condition, but when necessary, they are sympathetically restored to a high standard as close to the original design as possible.
