Thalen & Thalen

Dutch, 1954
The design and craftsmanship behind Belgium-based “Thalen & Thalen” lies in the hands of father and son duo Rob and Jaap Thalen. Born in 1954, Rob Thalen studied as s silversmith and began his career as a sculptor in The Netherlands in 1982. He relocated to Belgium in 2001, where he currently lives in the Ardennes Mountains neat the city of Spa. In 2005, he was joined by his son Jaap, and since then the duo has specialized in monumental contemporary works in silver. Jaap studied architecture in Belgium, and now works alongside his father as a designer and silversmith. Thalen & Thalen is unique in that its creators work predominantly in fine silver (999/000), otherwise known as pure silver. All of their creations are hallmarked in the Netherlands and receive the requisite government-issued hallmarks. The Thalens have exhibited across the globe, including their most recent exhibition at TEFAF 2015. Their works have been exhibited at a number of museums including Schoonhoven Zilvermuseum (The Netherlands), Sterckshof Zilvermuseum Antwerpen (Belgium), Deutsches Goldschmiedhaus Hanau (Germany), Neue Pinakothek Munchen (Germany), Design Museum Gent (Belgium), the International Design Museum Munich (Germany), Museum Kunstgewerbesammlung Huelsmann (Germany), among others. Their works can be found in public and private collections worldwide.
