Grand & Johnson
Their studio and showroom is located in a former Amsterdam monumental tram depot. It is a beautiful old and industrial building called ‘De Hallen’. This has some years ago been converted into a lively center for media, culture, fashion, design, hospitality and crafts. Here Grand & Johnson have their design studio founded by Bertel Grote and Jeroom Jansen. They both share a passion for interior, art and design from different points of departure. Where Jeroom has an eye for the creative process, Bertel watches over the planning and budget.
The co-founders: “The design of Grand & Johnson comes from the interplay of everything and everyone who gives substance to life. Where all the details come together and form a unity. A design with a story is a small world in itself. We are constantly looking for balance in contours, shapes, light, colors and materials.”
“A person wants to wonder. Grand & Johnson pays homage to wonder. An ode to what gives color to life. Chasing the unexpected by changing the perspective and coloring outside the lines. Crating a world where you see things that you have not seen before.”
In ‘De Hallen’ they have combined their showroom and design studio. Here they created a space as an invitation for creative interpretation. It is also the place where they pay attention to young talent, birds of paradise who design and make products with heart and soul. There is a place for them to work and create. Come in and let yourself be included in our story.
With their extensive interior experience, Jeroom Jansen and Bertel Grote have decided to set up design studio Grand & Johnson in October 2010. The strength of Grand & Johnson lies in designing and realizing a total concept. The architectural firm designs for private and commercial clients in the Netherlands, but also abroad. Grand & Johnson applies the principle of delivering quality and an excellent service orientation. It enables the company to achieve a powerful end result.
