A Poetic Space In Perfect Harmony + Contrast

I would love to attend Panta Rhei college in The Netherlands. i29 Interior Architects and Snelder Architects did an absolutely amazing job on this space. Panta Rhei meaning "everything flows" or "everything in motion" was the main inspiration behind i29's design. The design leaves space for the imagination of the user. Poems are applied like carpets to the floors and the furniture. These poems about friendship and insecurity have been left open ended for each student's own interpretion and continuous inspiration. The furniture is thought of like music and deals with harmony and contrast rather than taste and style. All in all this is absolutely stunning and as a student I would have loved going to school in this space each day!
