'What would you do with it, if all this is yours?'. That was the question which kickstarted the transition from rural farm, to a modern home. We were entrusted with the complete transformation of the house owned by an Oilman.

During the design process, we looked at elements of the existing architecture in the area. The excellent volumes of the masonry bonds and the decorative wall anchors are leading for the chosen design. The central focus of the gate is the "storage gatelight"

The old 'Diamantbeurs' in the heart of Amsterdam has been reopened to become a hotspot for events, congresses and catering. Atelier van Asseldonk was asked to create and produce an interior concept for one of the boardrooms.

By far the largest building in Eindhoven's Strijp-T recently opened its doors for the public. Atelier van Asseldonk was commissioned to create a spectacle at the entrance to the 40,000-square-meter office building. Inspired by the Philips history that resides there. Light!

The Noordkade in Veghel was once the scene of the CHV compound feed factory, but now the industrial site has been transformed into an art and culture cluster. Atelier van Asseldonk designed five eye-catchers in 2014 that glance to the glorious past of the site.

In 2015 De Waag, a new café and restaurant, opened in a prominent monument in Leiden. We became involved in the final stages of the interior design when we were commissioned to produce a giant customized Flare Stack candelabrum.

The open mind of creative professionals as a basis for innovation. In the opening exhibition OPEN MIND Kazerne shows the power of the creative industry and v Key figures from Dutch design, such as Maarten Baas, Kiki van Eijk & Joost van Bleiswijk, Mieke Meijer and Atelier van Asseldonk.

Exaggeration of size and emphasis of the skin of the object blends the definitions of modern sculpture and architecture into the realm of design. Like the Trouble Light, the Flare Stack gradually grew into a collection in which different materials and sizes were explored.

Rietveld’s legendary workshop re-opens as BRUNS DeStijlfactory. Originally built as Weverij De Ploeg in 1957, the first and only industrial complex from the heritage of Gerrit Th. Rietveld rejuvenates in colours, patterns and textures.

We all know clocks that indicate the time, but a clock that impermanence embodies? Unlike other clocks, 'The Time is Ticking' has an expiration date. One which is synchronized with that of its owner.

Symbolism, metaphor, and old Dutch proverbs come together to create an exuberant spectacle during Dutch Design Week.

During the annual Milan Design Week, Plusdesign has organized a collective show of three international designers: Ilias Lefas, Dirk vander Kooij, and Atelier van Asseldonk. As a starting point for the exposition we all reflected on the idea of focolare.

On an empty plot on Strijp-S in Eindhoven, we presented our Modern Times show during the Dutch Design Week. Introducing our new collection of autonomous works, refering not only to the industrial heritage of the location, but also alluded to the heroism of industry.

Trouble lights are mostly known from their use in garages and repair workshops, with a bulb that is protected by glass and a steel wire cage and a hook on top for hanging over a broken engine or underneath a car. Instead of the cheap steel plate and wire of the original, we enlarged the size and chose walnut and oak for our version of the trouble light.

At Bar Anne we presented a new work called The Wave Reflector. The wave reflector is part of a bigger research we did for an upcoming show. The installation consists of an object with the function of visually rearranging the space around the object.

In Vessem, near Eindhoven, you will find oak forests, heaths and marshes. To stimulate tourism, the municipality developed the 'Experience the Kempen' project, and commissioned Atelier van Asseldonk to show the public the most beautiful places in the old village.
