The new KLM Crown Lounge has opened at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. A home for global travellers, the design of the lounge was inspired by KLM philosophy and the local Dutch background.

A destination on itself 

The new lounge design concept, developed by concrete, combines local heritage, quirky shapes and high-end technologies. It has almost doubled in size and seats, keeping up with the brand's dynamic growth and long-term strategy. 

The two-storey lounge is divided into 5 different areas, each inspired by a distinctive part of the Dutch landscape. Here, you will find everything needed to spend a layover with joy and comfort. Polder lounge area invites the visitors to work and relax in a spacious seating area. Dutch Mountain offers a co-working area, TV room and DJ booth to keep the guests entertained. City is an inviting area to eat and drink. Sea is a place to recharge with many sleeping cabins and sensory reality booths. Sky is for fine dining and drinking, where customers can enjoy the high-end cuisine and cocktails.

Global place with a local character 

You can spot many elements of Dutch culture throughout the interior. The walls of the lounge contain over 5,000 famous KLM Delft blue houses. Other iconic pieces, like Nijntje and clogs, have also been used to pay homage to the cultural origins of the airline. KLM provided architects with many items from their archives, like vintage posters, uniforms and old suitcases. 


Dutch-designed furniture 

It is also fascinating to see so many elements of Dutch-designed furniture in this interior. KLM Lounge presents a unique collection of carefully selected all-time classics and modern items. Among others, you can spot the old-school Clip chair by De Vorm, matching perfectly with many wooden elements. Of course, this collection would be incomplete without the iconic Pod privacy chair - an innovative outcome of Dutch furniture design.
