Diamond-cutting factory ‘Elise’ was founded in 1880. At that time, there was such an abundance of rough diamonds that diamond-cutting factories were established to process the diamonds. The director (originally an engraver) rented the mills to diamond cutters. The factory is thought to have been named for Elisabeth, the director's wife. By the late 19th century, the diamond sector was among Amsterdam's largest industries. The building itself was somewhat inspired by the Neo-Renaissance architectural style with industrial characteristics.
