The family business that has more than 150 years of experience as an international hydraulic engineer.
Van Oord is a Rotterdam-based family business that has more than 150 years of experience as an international hydraulic engineering company. The company moved to a beautiful, characteristic building near the Van Brienenoord Bridge that was designed by Inbo Architects. We were asked to give substance to the interior, in consultation with the architect.
Although this was a major project, it felt like a train that just started going. Thanks to good preparation, we were able to keep that train tight on track, even when a switch occasionally went a little differently.
We provided furniture that matched the open nature of the architect's design. A nautical atmosphere was created in the design through the use of sand tones: from ochre to dark brown. The entire building breathes the work, history and pride of the company. We are proud that our design choices have emphasised that feeling.
Furniture that fits seamlessly with the architect’s design, and that radiates the work, history and pride of the company.
