Studio T300 creates design objects using materials from former prison
Design Studio T300 has created a unique collection of design furniture that incorporates materials from the former Bijlmer Bajes prison in Amsterdam. We have used materials such as prison bars, the wooden gym floors, and banisters from the stair houses to create a range of furniture that is not only functional but also holds historical significance.
The Bijlmer Bajes prison, which was closed in 2016, has become an icon in Amsterdam's history and represents a significant era in the city's past. By reusing materials from the prison, we aim to preserve the unique history of the Bijlmer Bajes and pay homage to its past.
The design philosophy behind the collection is in line with the innovative character of the new quarter that is to be built on the premises of the former prison. The designs are not only aesthetically pleasing but also serve as a reminder of the history and culture of the area.
The collection will be unveiled during an upcoming presentation, for which an announcement will follow soon. We hope the designs generate interest and spark conversation about the significance of reusing materials and the importance of preserving historical sites.
