Rietveld's factory building 'De Ploeg'

Van Asseldonk’s work combines monumental, architectural proportions with high refinement and rich materials. 

This visual language was incorporated into the renovation of Rietveld’s factory building thanks to an earlier collaboration between Bruns and Van Asseldonk during the production of ‘The Allegory of the South’ in 2015. Because the interventions are not part of the original, they speak a language of their own. Across the routes is the new conceptual wall that gives the floor plan a new layout.

Van Asseldonk came up with a concept for new interventions, which clearly distinguish themselves from Rietveld’s architecture in terms of design and material expression. In collaboration with Lensvelt, a special ‘De Ploeg’ collection has been developed for the lunch room in the building. Amongst other things: a chair, a bistro table and a sofa are produced by Lensvelt. The office is furnished with the Boring Collection and Rietveld originals can be found throughout the building.
