DUTCH ICONS WITH A TOUCH OF IRONY
After an extensive renovation, Google Amsterdam opened the doors of its unique new office space in early January, 2014.
Many old pieces of furniture, such as desks and storage units were re-used and repurposed by Furnify.
The team specifically sourced secondhand pieces and accessories with references to the Dutch culture: long cargo bikes (used as a reception counter), a Dutch fast food chain’s vending machine (filled with cords and chargers instead of fast food) and an authentic vintage Otten caravan. This trailer, including its vintage furnishings and an upgraded high pile carpet, was placed on the fifteenth floor and is now a popular informal meeting space. In order to fit this very large object through the entrance, it was cut in half first and then reassembled.
