GLUE amsterdam connected by design
Application Deadline: 1 June 2021
A four-day design-route from and for Amsterdam designers, architects, brands, showrooms, galleries, academies, and other colleagues.
GLUE amsterdam connected by design connects all locations and provides a substantive and attractive program for colleagues and the public.
In this time of corona and in our current society of social distancing that we will be living in for the foreseeable future, GLUE, with its design route that fans out across the city, is the ideal event. Nevertheless, we ask the exhibitors to follow the guidelines that the City of Amsterdam sets out shortly before the event, to maintain distance, to wash your hands frequently, to be inspired, and to have fun.

On the eve of the three-day festival, prior to the opening cocktails scattered all throughout the city, GLUE is organising a substantive debate at, and in collaboration with, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
What can designers add to Amsterdam? Why are creatives important for the city? We discuss what role design can play in a vibrant and unconventional city like ours.

GLUE HUBS 2020
Thomstudio is a design collective founded in 2015 by siblings Floor and Mares Thomassen. They are a flexible studio that operates in all fields of design. Coming from a background of movie set design it was a small step to designing lasting spaces. “We still love doing the occasional movie but our main focus has changed to designing private and public spaces, and with this shift Thomstudio was created to represent our multidisciplinary approach to design.”
STUART is a showroom for interior designers, architects and commercial clients. Various brands, concepts & inspiration for tomorrow’s work environment.
In addition to being an inspiring location to work (working showroom), STUART is also a place where we welcome design enthusiasts and where we show beautiful collections and innovations in the field of tomorrow’s work environment.
