INVENTORY LAB: Kazerne bar
Jeroen Wand & Intera
Within Kazerne Lab, professional creatives work cross-over with other (economic) sectors to develop products, insights, and incentives for topical issues. With their fresh perspective and outlook, they provide current social, cultural and economic issues with inspiration, new perspectives, and answers. That may sound rather pompous, but it is, in fact, an extremely practical process.
The Lab is not a physical workplace but a project that is worked on within the heads and studios of the participating designers.
SOCIAL DESIGN LAB
The social design Lab explores the open question of how designers can contribute to a more liveable world of tomorrow.
In the inventory Lab, designers work with regional manufacturing industries on creating innovative inventory for hospitality ends.

Based on the conversations with hospitality advisors, Jeroen Wand and interior builder Intera realized the defining bar at the entrance of Kazerne. They have taken a robust approach, matching the industrial character of the hangar. Besides the needed facilities, the bar has space for the showcasing of products, like books and design. Especially the mutual expertise concerning use of materials and routing gave new insights. The expertise and new networks that arose from this project directly boosted Studio Jeroen Wand, who now has employed multiple people and works from Eindhoven on the realization of interiors for international restaurants and hotels.
The interior of the bar was made possible by DR Trading (coffee machines and wine fridges), Gulpener Bier (taps and co-financing) and Van Zelfst (fridges).
