Henri Willig Cheese

Henri Willig produces tasty organic cheese. Visitors learn how that’s done in his cheese farms, among the animals and cheesemakers. These attract busloads of visitors. To help Henri Willig’s stories get the airtime they deserve, we developed a guided tour in Katwoude. This is all about grass, cows and cheese.

In the Fall of 2017 Henri Willig opened his new stables for his herd of Jersey cows, at his organic farm in Katwoude. Our self-guided tour is part of this state-of-the-art farm complex, which promotes animal welfare in all its aspects. It allows visitors – young and old – to discover the special bond Henri Willig has with his animals and his cheese. We managed concept, design and realisation in a record time before the official opening.

 

150 years of Heineken

Heineken’s Amsterdam

Together with the Amsterdam City Archive DST developed the exhibition Heineken’s Amsterdam, which was one of the big crowd pleasers with which the famous brewer celebrated its 150-year anniversary. The company’s contribution led to a comprehensive exhibition that allowed visitors to explore the rich history of Heineken and her founder.

Gerard Adriaan Heineken

Ever since Gerard Adriaan Heineken took over local brewery De Hooiberg (The Haystack) in 1864 the history of the famous brewer family and the city of Amsterdam have been woven together. The exhibition told the success story of what is likely the world most famous brewery and the role it played in developing the city of Amsterdam. Local landmarks such as the Paleis voor de Volksvlijt (People’s Palace), the lush Vondelpark, North Sea Channel and the major 19th century city expansion projects are all connected to Gerard Adriaan Heineken.

 

Heineken & DST

Heineken and DST go way back. In 2001 DST developed the Heineken Experience in the old Amsterdam brewery. For the City Archive exhibition DST signed for concept, design and production. Heineken’s Amsterdam was opened in February 2014 by Charlene de Carvalho-Heineken (great granddaughter of Gerard Adriaan Heineken) and deputy mayor Carolien Gehrels.

 

Anno (promoting history)

Oh, wat ben je mooi!

Kate Moss or a Rubens woman. Who is the fairest of these two? To answer that question, we will first have to answer another question: what era are we talking about? ‘You are so beautiful!’ is a roadshow about the history of beauty ideals. Accessible to all, because the travelling show could be seen in shopping malls throughout the Netherlands.

Increasing historical awareness

Beauty ideals are timeless, but they are changing all the time. Are you going for a Louis Vuitton handbag or a Bruges lace collar? Do we want a tan or rather enhance our pale skin with white cosmetics? Anno, the former promotion agency for Dutch history, aimed to raise the historic awareness in the Netherlands. Under the title ‘You are so beautiful!’, DST developed a roadshow about the ideals of beauty throughout the centuries.

 

Miraculous appearances

In a number of pavilions, interactive games, animations, images, sounds and artefacts give an impression of the miraculous appearances that people once thought to be important. The roadshow visited shopping malls throughout the Netherlands.
