Accolades for design exhibition in Oranienbaum Palace!
“Dutch Design – Huis van Oranje” (25.04 – 30.09) has received rave reviews in both Der Spiegel and the Tagesspiegel.
Both articles feature a picture of the Oranjesaal throne room with special praise for the interior realized by Bel Epok in collaboration with wallpaper artist Woulter Dolk. Critics acclaim the exhibition in the newly restored Oranje-Nassau dynastic seat near Dessau for its delightfully accessible presentation of new Dutch design together with old treasures from the Dutch royal archives.

After an in-depth briefing, plans are drawn up and our vision of the desired space put into pictures. At the same time, research is going on to find the best way of applying the original lithograph wallpaper to the walls of the throne room.

At the end of April 2012, the exhibition Dutch Design –Huis van Oranje will open
at the Oranienbaum Palace in the German Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt (www.oranienbaumexhibition.com). The palace is a highlight of the “oranjeroute”, a 2,500 km-long circular scenic route from eastern Germany to the Netherlands, featuring Dutch and German towns with historic ties to the Royal House of Orange-Nassau. The Oranienbaum Palace lies at the heart of the Dessau-Wörlitz Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Bel Epok is pleased and proud of the chance to participate in the exhibition in collabo-
ration with renowned Dutch wallpaper artist Wouter Dolk. Our “theatre of operations”: The throne room, no less! Our mission: To reinvent the whole interior with specially designed Wouter Dolk wallpaper.
