    Damage Playground Store in Rotterdam.

    4th June

    After running a successful online store for a year, brothers Alexandre and Anibal Furtado opened this monster cool menswear store called Damage Playground in Rotterdam.

    When it comes to super beautiful workplace interiors, it seriously doesn’t get much better than this. This is the sort of project that makes me get all hot and sweaty under my lady collar, with seriously impure thoughts running through my brain. Random Studio enlisted the help of Amsterdam based Studio X+L, who were an obvious choice to design the new space that felt like ‘home’. The brief called for a creative workplace that was open but felt intimate; an environment that would invite creativity and stimulate the sharing of knowledge and inspiration…
