Sporting interior design

Fontys Sports College

Two thousand students and teachers make daily use of the state-of-the-art top-level sports facilities of the Fontys Sports College in Eindhoven. The complete layout of the interior is based on achieving optimal results for students, teachers and employees.

The building breathes sport

Furnishing concept

The building breathes sport. The sports theme continues throughout the interior and furniture. The energy-efficient and sustainable building designed by Mecanoo architects excels in innovation and transparency. Fontys switched over to an activity-related interior for its education and office section of the building. The furnishing supports this goal. Gispen translated the housing concept into a fitting interior design. 

Good acoustics

The office- and teachers’ area is furnished with Ellen Lounge and Cubic, which are in line with the demands of The New Way of Working. The workstations can be used for various activities including concentrated working, working together and meeting one another.

Ellen Lounge as well as CubiC is built up from perforated panels with acoustic filling, which contribute to pleasant acoustics in the open office spaces.

Consultation & project management

‘Listening closely to your client’s wishes, that is how every project starts off. In my many years of experience in this industry, I have learned that this determines whether an interior design is successful or not. Asking the right questions and getting to the point is the next step, which you take together. Contributing to better education gives me a lot of positive energy.’

‘Working closely together with the client, giving tailored advice, I love my job’
