Madje Vollaers and Pascal Zwart founded Studio VollaertsZwart in 1991 as a design studio for interdisciplinary design and visual communication. They investigate the interaction between disciplines such as architecture, sculpture, fashion and communication and use this knowledge to develop new visual scenarios. In the past 20 years VollaersZwart has developed into the 'haute sculpture' designers for city dressing, designing exhibitions and art and communication on the streets and in the landscape. Famous projects are the marriage of Dutch royals Willem Alexander and Maxima, the Tunnel of Love, Love Parade and North Sea Jazz Festival. This book shows their 50 best projects within their social context, timeframe and artistic value.

Edo Dijksterhuis is a freelance journalist, critic and art missionary.
