The idea behind the info center was to come up with a new approach for this sort of space that is traditionally cold and impersonal. Our aim was to integrate the latest technology into it without making this visible.

The center would retain a homey feel to it and would be functional as well as flexible. The table with niches allows for privacy and concentration and it also provides plenty of traditional table surface for any other use.

The concept had to be as special and different as this museum so most furniture elements were custom designed and manufactured for the center.

A few of the custom furniture elements include the multitable, the magazine stands, the mirrors and vases as well as many other features. The space stands out with its bespoke residential feel and the quality of craft visible in every element.

Surely, the visitor will feel they have entered a special place. There is a special art piece in the center and it is a gigantic hand made and hand painted vase that is one of a kind. It is dedicated to the Netherlands, my loved one and her loved ones.

The marble floors are cut in hexagon shapes and give a royal feel to the public space. The copper lights, custom cinema and display cases around the room create a warm atmosphere, filled with light and energy.
