The Netherlands may well be a very small country, but the Dutch are dreamers by nature and like to push back boundaries. Whether in technology, design, fashion or architecture, they often manage to outdo themselves. So the concept for this Dutch themed bar and restaurant at Schiphol Airport was self-evident: where a small country can do great things. Whence the idea of creating a Dutch setting in surrealistic surroundings. Typical Dutch elements such as tulips are enlarged enormously out of proportion, while a view of a Dutch polder landscape on the floor from above is minimised tremendously. The original wall tiles and the service sets are painted by a Royal Delft masterpainter.
