Award-winning agency i29 was assigned the thorough interior design renovation of Felix Meritis, Amsterdam’s iconic events venue and one of the city’s most important monuments. The chosen design and architecture have been inspired by the rich history of the property, where each space refers to a specific period in the history of the building. The starting point was to show diversity and to give each area its own identity, and just as in 1788 each department got its own interpretation. Together they form a collection of colourful characters where the Bolon flooring set an example of how durability and high end design can be used in a renovation of a building from 1788 to give it a fresh, updated look while keeping some of its original look.
