Meet the Willets | Museum Willet-Holthuysen, Amsterdam | 2010
Abraham and Louise Willet bequeathed an extensive art collection that consists of paintings, ceramics, glassware, furniture, and sculptures. We were invited to make an exhibition design for four rooms, each with its own theme and atmosphere, with a consistent design as a connecting element.

To bring unity and an open air feeling, each room was fitted with floating platforms with its own colour scheme. The theme ‘The Willets at Home’ is decorated with blue to enhance the homely atmosphere of the 19th century. ‘Travelling’ is theatrical red, ‘Into the city’ is green, and ‘Love of Art’ is highlighted with elegant beige and burgundy. Via touch screens you can consult the collection and hear Abraham Willet’s contemplations about art.
