Amsterdam School

The Amsterdam School is an influential creative movement that has had a lasting impact on the Netherlands and beyond. Its combination of Expressionism, Constructivism and Art Deco has become a source of inspiration for many contemporary designers and its influence can be seen in a variety of modern art forms, including architecture, furniture design and even graffiti. The works of the Amsterdam School are characterized by their vibrant, almost dreamlike aesthetic and their iconic buildings, such as the Magere Brug, the Wibautstraat Station and the Amsterdam City Hall, are recognized around the world. The movement was also influential in the development of the Dutch graphic design industry and its influence can still be seen in the work of many modern designers.
