Atelier Néerlandais (part of the Dutch Embassy in Paris) is a platform and incubator for Dutch design, art, and literature.
Based in the heart of Paris.
Cultural entrepreneurs use the spaces in the Atelier Néerlandais for meetings, presentations, fashion shows, debates, etc.
Atelier Néerlandais is a place where Dutch and French culture and economy meet.
For this visual identity, we created imaginary zero-gravity spaces. Spaces with endless possibilities. Where words and letters can float around unconstrained, gently interacting with each other. Finding overlaps in Dutch and French words enabled us to design typography that could communicate on a bilingual level. And at the same time celebrating the similarities and the differences between the two cultures.
