Family founded since 2003
Family founders Diego and Brenda Kooy started their own gallery Spirits in Stone in 2003. However they noticed that many clients required a fitting plinth or pedestal besides the sculptures they bought. Dedicated to their clients’ requirements Diego and Brenda started to source a variety of plinths with the art. They discovered qualitative plinths made from various woods, metals, stone varieties, glass, plastics and concluded that there was no one-stop-shop for plinths and pedestals in the Netherlands. Subsequently they founded in 2004 the online shop www.sokkel.nl . Initially they sold the plinths through their art gallery in Wijk bij Duurstede, but later on they established a dedicated workshop and showroom in Den Hoorn (near The Hague, South Holland).
This location provides easy access to transportation to the UK as there is a direct link by ferry between Hook of Holland and Harwich (UK) and Calais (France) is a short drive away.
We now provide a large range of plinths of proven quality. Moreover we have specialised in providing advice and installation of plinths. Besides we often respond to a large demand for rental plinths. Currently we are proud to name a large number of international galleries, museums, companies with art collections, exhibition participants, artists, sculptors and private orders to our clientele.
