  • is able to blend the old in with the new in a coherent design?
  • is able to design spaces where people can live real-life experiences (stimulating all of their senses)?
  • is able to contribute ideas that ‘ordinary’ interior designers would never think of?

Why are we looking for a student at the Design Academy?

  • The design of the space should visibly reflect the objective of creating an experience that will promote and support the purpose of the meeting.

  • We will use new materials and furniture as well as (historical) old materials and furniture (including through the reuse of our extensive art collection and pieces of furniture).

For which purposes will the Experience Centre be used?

  • Off-site meetings, brainstorming sessions, team sessions
  • Recruitment and selection days
  • Classroom training courses and courses requiring the use of a PC
