Het Vijfde Seizoen

Christoph Seyferth

Spring/Summer 1998

Designer Christoph Seyferth was the first guest in Het Vijde Seizoen. He was commissioned to design a studio and living space for the artists who would follow him. By stripping the building down to its original state, keeping decoration to a minimum and making all of the furniture – from sofa to bathtub – mobile, he created maximum space for future residents. A large-lettered sign on the roof proclaims,'Het Vijde Seizoen', as if the pavilion were a theatre, while special stationery gives it the cachet of a good hotel. Seyferth’s project is best described as ‘Spartan luxury’.
