A steel display system
enables a flexible and open
display (below). Visitors
can choose how to navigate
the collection and make
connections between art and
design, modern and
contemporary (opposite).

The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam boasts an impressive
collection of 90,000 pieces of art from the 19th century
to the present, spanning every conceivable media from painting
and photography to sculpture and furniture. The collection
has included design and applied art since the 1930s, but
the works were never an integral part of the display. So when
the museum wanted to restructure its galleries, the design
team decided to transform the lower-level area, formerly
a space for temporary exhibits, into Stedelijk BASE,
a new showcase for the museum's extensive permanent
collection. "We needed a new prescription for the work,"
says Margriet Schavemaker, curator and manager
of learning at the museum "We wanted to merge
the design and art and create a dynamic
architecture for it.".

Key Design Highlights
Freestanding, interlocking
steel panels, designed by
Rem Koolhaas and Federico
Martelli, provide an open-ended
route through the gallery.
The durable steel and plywood
panels create a simple, sleek
aesthetic that showcases
the vibrant artwork.
Careful consideration was
given to art placement in
order to enhance the viewer's
experience, while giving them
the freedom to explore at
their own pace.
Paintings and objects can
be viewed together with works
displayed on each side of the
panels and platforms that
showcase furniture and vases.

Framework for art and design
The museum collaborated with AMO,
the research branch of the OMA, to rethink
the artwork presentation. Designed
by Rem Koolhaas and Federico Martelli,
the result is a series of freestanding,
interlocking steel panels that give visitors
an open-ended route through the gallery.
"We knew we didn't want the typical
room-by-room display," says Martelli,
