Broeinest Amsterdam is officially open!

Last night, on 24 May, Broeinest Amsterdam opened its doors to the public for the very first time with a festive opening. As long time partner, Materia was present to witness the event.

Broeinest, an initiative of Baars & Bloemhoff, is a material library and meeting place for (interior) architects and designers. Its first location in Eindhoven was opened in January 2015, and its second location in February 2017 in Rotterdam. Amsterdam is the third location.

At the opening of Broeinest Amsterdam, Materia had the chance to be one of the first to check out the location while enjoying a drink and a snack. The place offers space for lectures and other events. Currently, you can see Materia’s exhibition with the theme Healthy Materials (see below for a list of exhibitions in Broeinest).

Broeinest Amsterdam is opened every business day from 09:00 until 17:00h and can be visited free of charge, so be sure to visit when you’re in the neighbourhood!

In February 2016, Materia and Broeinest started their collaboration, in which Broeinest hosts exhibitions compiled by materials from Materia’s independent collection. Since its opening in Rotterdam, Broeinest also features a Materia exhibition there, and Amsterdam is no exception. The exhibitions are available all year round and are swapped four times per year.
