World Interiors Salon

The inamsterdam World Interiors Salon will be the event where Dutch designers and industry highlight the best of the best in Dutch interior and design.

The inmarket

The inmarket marks the opening of the new intercoms season! For many years already Gellerie Binnen and curator Peter van Kester have organized an annual sale of new and vintage design objects from a range of designers. Some products come directly from the Milan fair. For the World Interiors Event this sale will be extended to the inmarket; a market where designers and industry offer their prototypes, pilot series, rest stock and show models, single copies of ceramics, fashion, lighting, furniture, furnishings and vintage design.

Care; at home in an unfamiliar environment

We are using more and more of it, but nobody wants to need it; care (freely rendered from Nietsche; everybody wants to grow old, nobody wants to be it). In the Netherlands recently some bespoke hospital and care concepts have been developed, in which perception of patients as guests or residents is central. Now that in 2013 the first generation of baby-boomers will retire, the theme is more actual than ever. Based upon successful projects and the futuristic vision of designers and industry this exposition shows how a well designed environment contributes to healing and well-being.

Interiors collection Stedelijk Museum

Reopening after a renovation and extension that took more than 8 years the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art will once again claim it’s spot as the foremost museum of design in the Netherlands. Its design collection is one of the most outstanding in the world, with among others furniture, textiles, appliances and objects in wood, glass, ceramics, metal, plastics and synthetics, jewelry, posters and graphic design, but also complete interiors by Gerrit Rietveld. Connections with the outstanding collections of modern art are present in ceramics and textiles by Picasso and furniture by Donald Judd.

Contemporary living in a historic canal-mansion

The private museum Geelvinck, located in a historic Amsterdam canal mansion, focuses on showing today’s living room from different perspectives. For 2013 (and already anticipatory in the preceding months), the museum, together with partners in the field, plans to materialize several exhibitions on the theme of interior design.

Interior Scenes

Interiors and set designs play an important role in cinema. In its striking new building by Delugan Meissl Associated Architects with interiors by Concern the EYE Film Institute presents a program in which interiors play the leading role.

Care; the congress

Quite a lot of research has been done on the influence of spatial conditions and design to healing and well-being. In the Netherlands recently some bespoke hospital and care concepts have been developed, in which perception of patients as guests or residents is central. This congress aims at stakeholders and decision makers in the care industry and debates success and fail factors in healing environments, the importance of evidence based design and the results of recent design research will be presented.
