KABK students design for First Chamber

KABK Exhibition

Eighteen students of the Royal Academy of Art participated in a design contest for workspaces of the First Chamber. Richard Wendling, part-time student Graphic Design at the Royal Academy of Art won the first prize in the design contest 'Through time and space'.

The First Chamber has purchased new rooms at the first and second floor of Binnenhof 1. The rooms will be restored in a couple of years, but will be used in the meantime. The First Chamber initated the design contest for students of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and Willem de Kooning Academy Rotterdam in order to give the rooms a special interior for the next five years.

KABK participants are: Sacha Dufils, Rozemarlin Borkent, Stephan van Zijp, Eva Loure van Gameren, Kirsten Hegland, Elsbeth Bauer, Maartjes Borgers, Veerle Thoben, Erik van de Belt, Sarah Baganz, Richard Wendling, Alexandra Arshanskaya, Daniëlle de Waal, Mahal de Man, Bob Eikelboom, Yvonne Burg, Josje Hattink and Jacob de Jonge.

Students of both academies made their designs for walls and floors of the rooms based on Dutch political history. Each room represents a period of time. The participants presented their designs to a jury, led by the chairman of the First Chamber, in April 2011. Winner Richard Wendling, part-time student Graphic Design at the KABK, was offered a citytrip.
