Dutch Design Studio Tjep have created a series of innovative stores for Terminal 3 at Schipol Airport.
A Flower Shop that 'lifts up' a Cheese shop and a very on topic Bread shop. Bread! Brings the artisan bakery to the masses within one of Europe's busiest airports.
According to Tjep, the Design was inspired by the Interiors of the iconic Dutch Windmills. You can see that definitely in the slatted timber battens that create display units for the freshly baked bread.
As well as a eye catching servery area, there is a rather large dining area where this simple and contemporary style is further rolled out. The white unassuming side chairs that resemble a modern take on the chairs seen in the Shaker movement, match elegantly with the Ash finish of the bench seating and the grey quilted seat pads.
Put simply this is a beautiful Interior that pays homage to Design. It is detailed beautifully for an area of mass footfall and the consideration of material finish, style and colour is superb. However I expect nothing less of Dutch Design, they just get it, understand it completely and aren't afraid of taking a risk with going ahead with an achievable concept. In one of the worlds most finest cities (Amsterdam) this is just one tiny granule of a whole plethora of fine Design examples.
