Schiphol VIP Centre, Marcel Wanders,

Make beauty your destination. At the VIP Centre at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, travelers can now unwind or conduct business amid Dutch heritage and contemporary design. In a space offered between journeys, the luxurious lounge experience presents multiple rooms that each offer a different mood and feature design and art elements from different Dutch eras. From traditional patterns to 17th century motifs to iconic contemporary design, the public and private spaces at the VIP centre at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol envelop visitors in Dutch flavour and engage the senses. Rooms designed for business are equipped with high-end technology, while more secluded spaces are crafted to help people relax and engage with unexpected design. Arriving is like stepping back in time to be captivated by Dutch masterpieces and iconic works, in a leisurely escape where every room tells its own story. In each room the flooring designs are of essential value creating these specific atmospheres.

Marcel Wanders

Marcel Wanders is a leading product and interior designer. With his design studio he was responsible for over 1,900+ iconic product and interior design experiences all around the globe for private clients and premium brands such as Alessi, Amsterdam Airport, Audi, Baccarat, Bisazza, Christofle, Kase Corporation/ Decorte, Flos, KLM, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, LH&E Group, Louis Vuitton, Miramar Group, Morgans Hotel Group among scores of others. Marcel Wanders’ 30 years of design are celebrated in some of the most renowned art and design museums, including Centre Pompidou FR; Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, US; Metropolitan Museum of Art, US; Museum of Arts and Design, New York, US; Museum of Modern Art, US; Pinakotheke der Moderne, Munich, DE; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, NL; Oita Prefectural Art Museum, JP among others. Regarded by many as an anomaly in the design world, Marcel Wanders has made his mission to “create an environment of love, live with passion and make our most exciting dreams come true.” The work excites, provokes, and polarises, but never fails to surprise for its ingenuity, daring and singular quest to uplift the human spirit, and entertain. Marcel Wanders’ chief concern is to bring the human touch back to design, ushering in a ‘new age of design’, in which designer, craftsperson and user are reunited. In this process, Marcel Wanders defies design dogma, preferring instead to focus on holistic solutions rather than the technocratic. In this universe, the coldness of industrialism is replaced instead by the poetry, fantasy and romance of different ages, vividly brought to life in the contemporary moment.
