The Willem II fabriek (an artist-run initiative and concert hall in Den Bosch) had a limited budget for the interior of their café. So we decided to make a design only for half of the space: we divided the two rooms horizontally in two halves.
Overtreders W (Trespassers W) are a spatial design agency, founded in 2006 by Reinder Bakker and Hester van Dijk. Graduates of The Design Academy in Eindhoven, we are currently based in Amsterdam. We have designed the interior space of several restaurants and visitor's centres, a few exhibitions and small pavilions, and even a wool factory, an entrance gate for the biggest outdoor market of Amsterdam, and a mobile picnic pavilion with a luminous inflatable roof.
We believe in a sustainable world, in which trash is a material resource, products are mainly produced locally and people are able to make a living with their skills. Therefore, we like to work with recycled materials, we love to reveal the beauty of regular everyday materials and we stimulate craftsmanship in our designs. Naturally we want the sustainable world to look impressive, so we turn our concepts into great designs.
