The Frozen Fountain

The Frozen Fountain is located in two immense buildings on the Prinsengracht. It's one of the best places in Amsterdam for lovers of contemporary design, with pieces by big international names and emerging Dutch talents.
From iconic pieces to local creations
When Dick Dankers opened the shop in 1985, his original idea was to mix design and quality artisanal work. A few years later the store had evolved and turned exclusively to design. The excellent Dutch schools and the tradition among the country's designers of producing their own work had a lot to do with it. The current formula offers an eclectic mix that runs from furniture to dishes to fabrics, lamps, decorative items and even books.
Photography exhibitions and contemporary art installations round out the product line. They express the desires of our time and create an exciting dialogue between art and design. It’s an inexhaustible source of inspiration to which I'm particularly partial.
I love Amsterdam's open spirit. It's easy to meet people and have rich, interesting conversations. The heart of the city is bubbling over with cultural initiatives, secret restaurants and nature routes that relax you in no time. I want to share it all with you!
