ABN/aMRO-house 2017

2nd pavilion from a series of 4 temporary meeting spaces for Dutch Design Week

From 2016 onwards, we worked for 3 consecutive years as art directors of the Klokgebouw during Dutch Design Week, introducing No Waste as a theme and guidance. We built the entire 6000m2 exhibition under our supervision with recycled materials and leftovers from industrial processes, in order to avoid producing extra waste. Each year we designed a temporary pavilion for main sponsor ABN/AMRO as a series in which we examined the possibilities of circular building with one or two materials at a time.


In 2017, for the ABN/AMRO house, we made use of borrowed Greenpanel construction panels suspended from steel cables. By changing the colour of light and the way the panels were hung up, we made a dynamic and attractive sight. After the Dutch Design Week, the panels were returned to owner Greenpanel undamaged.
