Oak Building


In commission of Merin, Mulderblauw made the interior design for the public space of this existing office building in Apeldoorn.



The interior design was based on the industrial history of the building and the nature in the surrounding area. The key question was: how do we get nature and technique to connect in an interior design?

‘Oak Building’ is located on a former Philips site. Up until a few years back, this is where circuit boards for mechanical engineering and medical applications were produced. The graphic patterns of circuit boards are incorporated in the carpets and window stickers.


The industrial feel is enhanced by using different types of steel and concrete. A lot of greenery and natural basic colors were applied in the interior design to add softness. The colors are inspired by the heath lands and grassy plains of the Veluwe. Notable is that the patterns of the circuit boards and certain natural patterns are very much alike. This has created a special mix of industrial and natural elements which in turn makes it an appreciated place to work and to relax.
