Dutch Design (5): FG Stijl

Dutch have a name to lose in Design.

I’ll start the series Dutch Design with FG Stijl. The F comes from Finegan and the G from Glintmeijer.

Colin Finnegan (1968), a British native with a British degree in interior design, lives and works in Amsterdam for over 16 years and formed a partnership with Gerard Glintmeijer in 1995.

Gerard Glintmeijer (1968), a Dutch native, started his career in the field of the hospitality. He studied at a Dutch hotel school, textile and management and finished his study as a concept designer and interior stylist.

FG Stijl Architecture and Interior design – Amsterdam is located on one of Amsterdam’s islands where Design related companies are cosily clustering together.

    Hi Thijs

    Thank you for your visit.

    No I won’t forget, actually have several posts about them in the making or in my head, but I got distracted by various other developments like the Travvies and the T-lists of this world.

    Greetings
