Fascinated by the beauty of Japanese Wabi Sabi, inspired by aerial views of rugged mountains; Sher’s relief paintings are characterised by rough, flawed materials and surfaces…Focusing on raw beauty of nature, e.g. gradual erosion. Wabi sabi accepts the imperfection of natural processes, the cycle of growth and decay, the impermanence of all things…

Inspired by aerial views of rugged mountains…

Studio Ho uses experimental techniques to create heavy textures…

Client SFZ will move into the 3rd floor of an office building in Amsterdam together with 3oaks. Both companies stand for a clear basis with effective solutions which is reflected in the interior design. For example, the choice was made for an office that was as transparent as possible by using transparent office glass cubicles, glass partition walls. Modern epoxy white flooring juxtaposed with colourfull carpet accents and floors give different functions within the building. The colors in the logo of SFZ and 3oaks together (bright blue, orange, grey and black tones) appear in the interior and styling and add color to the white office space. Blue carpet combined on flooring and wall has been chosen in the central entrance.

The house was build in 1881, reattached from two previously smaller houses. Prior to the renovation the interior lacked atmosphere and domesticity. Studio Ho’s approach was to create a warm and authentic space for the client with a balance between functionality and aesthetics. Studio Ho loves to combine both contemporary design elements with ethnic collectibles; inspired by the aesthetic of Japanese ‘wabi sabi’. Natural colours and materials combined with simple clean lines; to allow the ethnic objects to stand out in the interior.

A limited palette of white and beige limewashed walls, rustic wooden panels, white, grey riverwashed Neolith surfaces, natural stone ceramics flooring and contrasting black powder-coated steel accents; to create a well-balanced and atmospheric interior.

The living room is separated from the kitchen and dining room. The family can use both spaces separately, this creates a great deal of privacy. Natural warm brown, beige tints and black steel details set the tone in the interior, which includes a cozy built-in gas fire next to the dining table. Dining tabletop; made from antique Chinese elm wood.

Interior styling / contemporary / ethnic




Entrance / Interior styling and design for a luxurious appartement building in Utrecht, by renowed Dutch architect Cees Dam [ Stopera, Amsterdam ]. Cees Dam’s biggest inspirator is Italian architect Carlo Scarpa. Scarpa was fascinated by Japan and the Japanese beliefs of space and how they use it. He also took the wabi-sabi beliefs of the Japanese into his work.


According to Cees Dam; architecture = art. The essence lies in ‘de verwondering, amazement’. Where tradition meets new forms and possibilities… The interior styling concept is inspired by Cees Dam’s philosopy and his strong admiration for Carlo Scarpa’s love of Japanese architecture, use of natural materials, minimalism design and their understanding of nature.
