Studio des Bouvrie is open to the public without an appointment and welcomes visitors to experience over 1000 square meters of various inspirational spaces, always incorporating art.
Our colorful roots
The studio was founded by the creative couple Jan and Monique des Bouvrie. While Des Bouvrie has a long history in using nuances of black and white in furniture design, interior design and architecture, we like to be known for being the Dutch design studio that uses the full spectrum of colors! Black and white are the carriers of all colors. We believe it is the client and the assignment that determines the palette we use when designing contemporary spaces.
Innovation overthrowing the status quo
Des Bouvrie is well known being an innovator. In the 80’s, Jan made the world look differently at living. He overthrew the status quo by showing on how to turn a traditional home into a real living space where many aspects of life come together. The contemporary open kitchen and kitchen island were revolutionary at the time. Studio des Bouvrie pioneered the thought a living space will grow along with you as a person, paving the way for many furniture superstores and interior design love across the globe.
Jan des Bouvries work is based on his belief that:
“A living space is the translation of your personality”.
This motto forms the basis of all our current bespoke design activities.
