Besturenraad/BKO in The Netherlands by COEN!

COEN! has recently completed the interior of an office in The Netherlands.

These two organizations deal with the two denominational types of education in The Netherlands: Catholic and Protestant. The goal of the project was to visually connect the shared goals and principles of both organizations.

Using The Book as a metaphor, apart from the Christian and Catholic values, the Book also consists of structure, text and image. You see stained glass patterns, metal grids based on the golden section and special text prints with a message. The relation between faith and education is also subtly noted through DNA patterns and golden “office altars.”
