Last September the design studio of Jeroom Jansen and Bertel Grote; Grand & Johnson, celebrated the opening of their beautiful studio and a brand new accompanying store in the Amsterdam West-based new creative area named De Hallen. The area, a former tram depot, has been transformed into what is in the process of becoming the creative centre of that area of Amsterdam, housing a mix of cultural, culinary and creative initiatives like Filmhallen, Hallenstudio, House Of Denim and Foodcourt. Next to a great selection of Mendo books, the store offers Grand & Johnson’s own designs, next to custom-made baths, cupboards and dressers. A beautiful selection of special and unique items which were hardly available in The Netherlands before, selected from around the world from places like Japan, Canada and Denmark.
In an interview with Mendo, Grand & Johnson founder Bertel Grote on the foundation of the store:
It made us realize that what we envisioned could become reality: to work in an environment that clearly shows what we can do, what we think is beautiful and what makes us happy. With the opening of our mezzanine design-office slash interior-accessory store we realized our dream.
Jeroom Jansen and Bertel Grote formed design studio Grand & Johnson on 1 October 2010. Together they have over 20 years of experience in the field of interior design for the high-end market. The strengths of Grand & Johnson is designing and implementing total design solutions for residential as well as commercial projects in the Netherlands and abroad. Their label OFF-X focuses specifically on office design. Creating unique and affordable interiors, designed by architects.
