Design ceiling panels city hall Leeuwarden

After renovating the hall of the city hall in Leeuwarden, it turned out that there was too much reverberation in the hall. To solve this problem the decision was made was to install acoustic panels. When it became clear that the panels could also be printed, a commission was issued by the municipality of Leeuwarden with the idea to provide the panels with images of famous Leeuwarders from the past.

I got the assignment to design the 9 panels and made these illustrations where each person is surrounded with elements that tell something about him or her. The style is a more modern version of the old ceilings where there is a decorative ornament in every corner.A style that fits the style of the town hall where old and new are united.
