Villa

An unpredictable harmony which encourages dialogue

This house in Oisterwijk in North Brabant was designed by Dutch architect Bob Manders. The bold interior design that matches the characteristics of the house, its owner, and the environment was also his creation. However, the design is more than just a derivative of these three elements. It encourages dialogue in which the door fittings by FORMANI® serve a linking purpose.

Hidden beauty, subdued passion: that is what Manders’ work is about

This house combines the passion of the designer for innovation with a respectful understanding of the past. To this end he is inspired by Dutch heritage such as Rembrandt's use of light which is combined with the styles of the famous masters from Vitruvius through to Le Corbusier. This has created unpredictable but balanced rooms that can be appreciated all over the world.

Reality is not what it seems

The minimalistic approach with a focus on elements that might appear illogical at first sight is characteristic of Bob Manders’ style. This creates a sense of unpredictability that invokes exciting discoveries. This includes a revolving door that transforms a room that appears empty at first, into a practical space filled with books and a comfortable sofa, or a completely white wall that transforms into a work of art when light is cast upon it.
