- About Us
This stylish home is located in ‘Duivelseiland,’ part of Amsterdam’s well-known ’Oud-Zuid’ district. Famous as being the home of many museums, including the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, and the Stedelijk Museum, it is also well known for its authentic buildings such as the one here – a conversion of what were once two small shops.
This particular residence is home to none other than Edward van Vliet, one of the Netherlands’ best-known and most successful designers of the moment. As well as being his personal living space, the residence serves as a sort of laboratory to test his latest product designs by putting them to practical use. The house features numerous eye-catching showpieces designed by Van Vliet for Moroso, Kvadrat, Moooi, and many other leading brands.
The lever handles in matt gold with black grips remind us of a time past when doors were fitted with traditional black, often ebony handles. As such, Nour can be seen as a classic yet modern variant of what many people would call a 1930s door handle. But along with this link to history, there is also a clear Asian influence – a region from which Edward van Vliet draws much of his inspiration.
One of NOUR's particular characteristics, and also oneof its strengths, is the design’s inherent flexibility. The range has a modular structure, so that the grips can be replaced and other colours substituted. This allows for a variety of wonderful combinations of polished stainless steel, PVD matt gold, matt black, and matt white.
