We’ve relocated our studio to the Nedinsco Fabriek, a former Carl Zeiss Jena industrial complex and Dutch monument in Bauhaus style. Built from concrete and steel, the building is a good example of New Objectivity Architecture; a modern architecture that emerged in Europe, in the 1920s and 30s.
The studio is designed as a loft, a large open space only divided by furniture. We used raw materials like concrete, used construction wood, metal from scaffolding and industrial elements (industrial lighting fixtures from shuttered factories) to create a deliberate contrast with sleek furniture from Charles and Ray Eames and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
The flexibility of the large open space, light colors and lot’s of daylight delivered through large windows create a awesome space think and work. It’s a continues work in progress and it evolves with us as we move from stage to stage in a design project.
