Meaning ‘dry’ in Dutch, Droog is a conceptual Dutch design company located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Droog was founded in 1993 by product designer Gijs Bakker and design historian Renny Ramakers. 

During the Milan Furniture Fair in 1993, the duo presented a selection of sober designs made of industrial materials and found objects. The presentation was titled ‘Droog Design’, because of the simplicity and dry humor of the objects. 

Droog works with independent designers to design and realize products, projects, exhibitions and events. The Droog collection, curated by Renny Ramakers, consists of around 200 products by more than a hundred designers including Marcel Wanders, Hella Jongerius, Richard Hutten and Jurgen Bey.
