Louk Straver

Create space, where there is time to live

Louk Straver Ontwerp Product & Ruimte is an independent agency that, since its foundation in 1976, has been involved in the design of interiors for companies, institutions and private customers.

Notable interior projects from the agency’s history include the design of the executive board rooms of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines in Amstelveen, the board rooms of Mercedes Benz in Frankfurt, and the total interior design of the KNP Royal Dutch Paper Mills’ head office (designed by American architect Richard Meier) in Hilversum.

Product developement was added as an extra department to the agency in 1982. International recognition followed quickly, when a table design proved to be a smash hit at the Cologne Furniture Fair. Since then, the agency has been working for Dutch and German furniture manufacturers.

In the nineties, interest in related disciplines and the need for co-operation brought the agency into contact with major retailers in Europe and the United States. The Scandinavian automotive industry became another major client.

Broad interests, co-operation with fascinating people and exciting creativity have resulted in a varied and impressive list of clients. Although our role in the design process has become more and more diverse, the determining factor for the agency is and will continue to be DESIGN.
