When a major Dutch footwear brand (and one that just happens to produce eric Kuster’s own-design boots and sneakers) wants its new home furnished, only the very best will do. It’s not just about creating a practical setting that people want to work in, one in in which deals can be done - it’s about reflecting brand values of quality, energy, glamour and reliability. smoked glass combines with light-wood floors for a look that’s both classic and modern, while, on the walls, leather tiling - with its wonderfully evocative smell - makes contemporary use of the footwear industry’s primary material. artwork here pays tribute both to fashion icons - think steve mcQueen and audrey Hepburn - and includes charming sketches of vintage footwear, too. The overall style says that this a company with both a sense of its heritage, and an eye firmly on the future.
