Rutger de Vries at Capital C

Rutger de Vries created a new ‘fire extinguisher’ installation at the soon to be opened Capital C, located in the Diamantbeurs in Amsterdam. As the name suggests, the building was once the old centre of the diamond trade in Amsterdam. After extensive renovation and restoration, the building will act as a cultural hub for all things creative – advertising, design, digital media and art. De Vries’ paint machines have decorated the staircases on each floor of the building, with a different colour being released at each level. The installation culminates in a ‘colour bomb’ at the bottom of the stairs. Capital C is due to open later this year.
