Schiphol surprises passengers with collection of Delftware from Paleis Het Loo


Passengers arriving at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol's Pier E in the next few years will be greeted with a stunning sight: a presentation of 12 Delftware vases from the gardens of Paleis Het Loo, arranged by well-known Dutch designer Mae Engelgeer. This collaboration between Schiphol and Paleis Het Loo provides an especially warm welcome to passengers arriving in the Netherlands.

Making passengers feel welcome and pleasantly surprised is a vital concern at Schiphol. Art plays a significant role in this respect. It represents a welcome home to some and an introduction to the culture on offer in the Netherlands to others. The pier's spatial, airy character forms the ultimate neutral backdrop to this remarkable presentation of Delftware.
