Projects


A non-chronological selection of projects we collaborated on (updated forever)

Palau Corals Mathijs Labadie Damage Playground projects 2016

project: Set Dressing

commissioned by: PalauLabadie / Van Tour

year: 2016

A series of portraits shot from above for the interior design of the KLM Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircrafts. The pattern used for the bulkheads (cabin dividers) is a tribute to the diversity of economy-class travellers. From a distance, the bulkheads look like irregular grid patterns of white dots against a soft grey background. As you move in closer, more and more details become visible, and an image gradually appears: a large group of passengers viewed from the air. This pattern is based on photos of many different travellers, transformed into line drawings to create a more abstract image. They are people of all ages and cultures, headed for many different destinations, each with a unique story to tell passengers who gaze at the dots during their flight. What seems to be a pattern of dots from a distance, turns out to be a collection of individuals at closer inspection. Flying around the world as of 2015.

project: Intervention shop in 24Hofpoort (former Shell headquarters)

commissioned by: ZUSSuzanne LindersElisabeth Boersma (planB. urbanism)

year: 2013

Op de Dag van de Architectuur wordt reality shop ENTER_ gepresenteerd. Het biedt letterlijk het kijkje achter de (computer)schermen: de bezoeker treedt met ENTER_binnen in de werkplaats van de ontwerpers, wat vaak de huiskamer, eetkamer of zelfs slaapkamer is. De preview van deze omkering brengt de bezoeker en ontwerper tot elkaar en laat alsmede de ruimtelijke kwaliteiten zien waarmee deze nieuwe concepten zich kunnen manifesteren: evenementsgewijs, verrassend en op steeds nieuwe locaties. De leegstaande Hofpoort (voormalig Shell Hoofdkantoor) in Rotterdam wordt dan omgetoverd tot 24-uursstad.
