Thonik in collaboration with MMX Architekten have created a permanent installation design in Amsterdam that sees the meeting of graphic design and architecture.
Designed by Thomas Widdershoven and Arjan van Ruyven, Studio Thonik is a bold installation on the sole urban boulevard in the city centre of the capital, standing as part-iconic building, part-'supergraphic'.
The work sees beams of dark grey and broken white turn the six-storey structure into an icon. A grid of windows is lined by vertical stripes on the walls, offset by diagonal stripes on the stairway and horizontal stripes on the balconies. The graphic skin has been thoughtfully designed to carefully bring rhythm and balance to all architectural elements of the structural building.
