Together with photographer Sander van den Bosch, we are measuring and photographing all floors of the palace. Visitors will soon be walking on 'invisible' carpets, in order to experience the original atmosphere of the rooms as fully as possible. Paleis Het Loo

Living in the Amsterdam School

Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (NL)

The Amsterdam School is famous for its architecture, both in the Netherlands and internationally. However, the school’s spectacular design for interiors is less well known. The exhibition ‘Living in the Amsterdam School’ focuses on the interior design of this expressive, influential movement at the start of the twentieth century. Visitors can get filled with wonder through the sculptural lines, the colourful palette and intricate patterns, shown in the over 500 objects on display, like furniture, lamps, ceramics, textiles and stained glass. Kossmann.dejong created an engaging environment for this collection through a graphical setting of extremely enlarged details on the walls; blow-ups, which surround the visitor and emphasize the exceptional form language of the Amsterdam School.
