Panel manufacturer Trespa has opened a new Design Centre in New York; the interior has been designed by Hans van de Schoot of Studio Schoot in the Netherlands.

The main purpose of the Trespa Design Centre is to inspire the large concentration of innovative architects who work in the city but are involved with projects nationwide. The Design Centre is situated on Greene Street in the SoHo area of lower Manhattan where many of these architectural practices are based. This is also the design district where many interior showrooms, architectural product companies and associated activities proliferate. Trespa’s new Design Centre in New York aims to offer a unique experience for American architects. It will not only be a showcase for Trespa’s building design concepts and other Dutch products but will also be an inspirational place for meeting, learning and networking.

Interior design
Dutch designer Hans van de Schoot has spent 25 years creating inspirational spaces, showrooms and exhibitions around the world. The well-known practice of Gage Clemenceau was commissioned to be the local project architects. Their work has been featured in Chicago’s Museum of Art and New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

Dutch design
To emphasise the Dutch design theme, the facility integrates products from other well-known Dutch suppliers. These include, for example, Forbo flooring, Brand van Egmond lighting, Tichelaar Makkum ceramic products and Ahrend Bcrea and Montis furniture. It will also feature products designed by Marcel Wanders, Li Edelkoort, Hella Jongerius, Piet Hein Eek, Job Smeets, Evelyn Merkx, William Brand, Arnette van Egmond and many other famous Dutch designers.

Design concepts and products
The Design Centre will be more of an experience than a showroom. It will also provide a large networking and discussion space for architects, designers and their clients. By offering meeting rooms, free internet, printing facilities and other benefits, it will be an inspirational place. In addition, the Dutch design partners will also use the Design Centre as a platform for their design events and product exhibitions.
