An interior is more than just a collection of furniture. In addition to individual items, the layout and architecture play a role in making a space – whether used for residential or commercial purposes – feel like a second skin. A good interior can be compared to a finished jigsaw puzzle, with all the pieces fitting together perfectly – but that is easier said than done. Such a radical process requires the professional touch of an interior architect with a broad perspective. It is his all-encompassing vision that sets Remy Meijers (1974) apart.
Rather than stopping at preparing the general outline of a project, his involvement extends right down to the tiniest of details. The result: interiors which, in all their simplicity, exude a wonderful sense of calm. Remy Meijers’ vision comes across in all the mansions, villas, canal houses, commercial properties and holiday homes that he has worked on; his designs and the techniques he uses are fine-tuned to perfection.
It is his desire to create a strong base in every interior. That’s why he prefers to design furniture and accessories himself. The result of that approach is a striking collection of furniture which since 2012 is available as Remy Meijers Collection. Some of his designs also can be found in the collection of the Dutch designcompanies Bod’or (doors) and Nilson (beds).
His ideas are appealing: the results have been featured in leading interior design magazines around the world. Also numerous blogs, from Japan to America, have paid attention to his work. A selection of his projects is collected in the monograph Shades of Grey that was published in 2011. Since 2013 Remy Meijers can be seen on national Dutch television in a program about design and living.
Remy Meijers graduated cum laude in Interior and Furniture Design from the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU) in 1995.
