About WoOL Amsterdam

High-end, handcrafted room dividers

We design for the senses

 

We are WoOL Amsterdam.

 

We design high-end, sophisticated room dividers that absorb sound and appeal to your senses. Inspired by nature, handcrafted and made from high quality, natural wool felt.

 

Wool is a renewable material; a gift from nature that inspires us to create products that shape light, modulate sound and invite touch. We do more than just create products, we add an experience to a room. We design for the senses.

We started to create exclusive wool felt products in Interior designs for ZENBER Architects in 2012, and launched our label as an independent brand in 2015.

 

All our products are handcrafted in our Amsterdam studio, located in the central-east part of Amsterdam, not far from Central Station.

 

We are inspired by nature. We love to capture the raw essence of what can’t easily be captured. Think the play of light on the aging bark of a tree, listening to the silence of moss or witnessing the movements in the wind of nature’s own designs. 

Handcrafted

 

Feel, touch and experience the handcrafted wool felt room dividers that absorb sound and add sophisticated value to your home or working environment.

 

The exclusive, nature inspired and highly functional products result from the creative mind of Dutch designer Ingrid Heijne, founder & art director of WoOL Amsterdam and ZENBER Architects.

Biography Ingrid Heijne

 

After her graduation at fine arts school ARTEZ in 1994, Heijne post-graduated in 1995 from the prestigious Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. She became art director for the Dutch film and television industry, and created her own design companies. In collaboration with partner and renowned interior architect Eric Wezenberg, she started ZENBER Architects in 2012. ZENBER Architects designs innovative working spaces for offices and educational institutions, with a pragmatic approach and open dialogue towards the end-user. This results in exceptional designs that embrace the approach of Activity Based Working, and that are highly functional and sustainable.

As a creative Director for ZENBER Architects, Heijne designed head offices for international companies like Rabobank, NN group, the Red Cross, Navigant, Nikon and many others. They are currently working on the redevelopment of Schiphol Airport’s transfer area.

 

Heijne’s wool felt products are a substantial part of ZENBER’s interior designs, and were soon discovered by Iconic Dutch design brands like Vitra, Moooi and Lensvelt who embodied the room dividers in their showrooms and exhibitions in Milan and Amsterdam to frame their distinct high-end interior presentation in 2015-17. After Workshop of Wonders (a renowned dutch platform for experimental and wayward design) exhibited the room dividers in their design gallery in Utrecht in 2018, designlovers could not stop talking about WoOL Amsterdam.
