From a small store in Amsterdam in the 70’s to a global operating wholesale company nowadays; the story of CNB Enterprises has always been one of Dutch entrepreneurship and love for Japanese culture.
Until this day the symbiosis of the two inspires the very essence of the company. Combining the best of both cultures into a family run enterprise where loyalty, quality and long-term business relations are valued equally to commerciality.
The modern day CNB Enterprises is a market leader operating in three divisions: home & living, restaurant & kitchen and healthcare.
CNB’s products can be found in the world’s most renowned stores, such as Lafayette (France), Stockmann (Scandinavia and Russia), Kaufhof and kadewe (Germany), La Rinascente (italy) and Bijenkorf (the Netherlands) as well as many other well regarded national and international (concept) stores and retail chaines.

Tokyo Design Studio
Founded in 2010 Tokyo Design Studio creates high quality tableware inspired by both Japanese tradition and the eclectic international lifestyle of modern day Tokyo.
All our products are traditionally produced in Japan and available across the globe.
With design teams located in both The Netherlands and Japan we aim to create a unique and constantly evolving signature where East meets West and tradition meets the new. Respecting centuries of porcelain and pottery heritage, we constantly look for unexpected perspectives that help us create the tableware of today and tomorrow.
The creative cross-pollination between Japan and the Netherlands dates back to the 16th & 17th century when inspired by porcelain imported from the Orient the Dutch developed Delft Blue, which over time became so popular it sparked its own artistic interpretations from Japan in return. With Tokyo Design Studio we celebrate these cross-cultural collaborations of the past and add a new chapter by giving a unique European twist to traditional Japanese pattern and tableware design.
Trends & lifestyle
Modern day Tokyo is one of the fashion and lifestyle capitals of the world, an innovative melting pot where trends are combined and born. Next to reinterpreting classic Japanese designs, Tokyo Design Studio takes inspiration from these trends to develop unique contemporary lines, such as our indigo tableware celebrating the Japanese denim tradition or our Kasuri line based on the Ikat trend visible in fashion.
Our products are made in Japan via an artisanal method perfected over the last
400 years. Our products are baked twice, then decorated one colour at a time, glazed and baked again. Throughout the process a meticulous quality control is applied making sure each Tokyo Design Studio product is of the highest quality.
