A concept store, opened in the early 1900s in Amsterdam, restyled by Studiopepe. A couple of creative minds whom we know very well
The passion of the Co van der Horst family for design has continued for four generations. Amstelveen, not far from Amsterdam, hosts their concept store, a true reference point for the Dutch people. Inside, it presents the most famous international brands alongside spaces dedicated to new kitchen systems, the feel good studio and a rich selection of upholstery fabrics. A meeting between the owners and Studiopepe - Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara di Pinto – sparked the family’s desire to renew the store. The initial restyling started from the basement: to renew it they decided on iconic furniture by Arflex, Baxter and Cassina, matched with elegant pieces by Christophe Delcourt with furnishing accessories by Pulpo and Guax and rugs by cc- tapis. In the bathroom area, they chose furniture by Agape and lights by Artemide and Flos. The walls were transformed by the designers to flaunt geometric and figurative decorations, surfaces with an emerald green finish and curtains of draped fabric. In a row of rooms that can be glimpsed through the archways and openings created to show them off, the result is a welcoming, sophisticated atmosphere that leaves the observer spellbound. Now there is a place in Amsterdam in which to gain inspiration, find ideal materials and discover contemporary furniture, all in hot pursuit of the latest in international design.
