The roots of Pilat&Pilat lie in the Frisian town of Twijzel. There, on the farm, Gjalt Pilat started selling and refurbishing antiques more than forty-five years ago. The wood workshop also formed the basis for his own designs. The ‘Famylje’ collection has been a fact since the 1990s: sustainable, wooden furniture. Strong in simplicity and traditionally made.
In 2003, Pilat&Pilat moved production to its own factory in Bosnia. The wood is widely available, just like good craftsmen. The Nord Ent-Lockwood factory is thriving and growing. Just like the Pilat&Pilat family business, with sales outlets at home and abroad.
