ROC Carolus Nijmegen


Nijmegen – The new accomodation of the ROC Carolus (Intermediate Vocational Education) covers 30.000m� and has been divided into seperate building components which virtually float into a sea of glass. The buildings are accessible from the central interior Plaza. The ground level, designed to be publicly accessible, houses shops, a bakery, barbers and more, so students can have an internship at their own school. More private rooms are located at the higher levels of the building. Bridges across the Plaza provide passage between the building components, simultaneously giving the passer-by a spectacular view of liveliness downstairs. The most characteristic element of the ROC is the dazzling facade. The elements needed to be cost conscious but also of high quality. Therefore we designed a number of repeating basic elements which can be rotated and randomly mounted.

Custom shape


Our products are statements, and prompt you to spin tales, to dream and to shape a reality all your own. These are designer pieces that imbue a space with meaning by skirting the edges of all that is obvious. Pieces that exude energy and push the envelope of design. From the outset, Quinze & Milan used the slogan ‘Creators of Atmosphere‘: a piece of furniture was not an aim in itself but a medium for a lifestyle that set out to challenge the reigning minimalism: wild and sexy, carefree and fun, loud and outrageous. Even the most respectable and critical international trade magazines soon welcomed Q&M as the pop star of furniture and the bad boys of the design world: a bit of punk, but also a bit of Prada.
Quinze & Milan is not a typical furniture label but an avant-garde platform for collaborations, a think tank and factory for ideas, designs, visual culture, concepts and experiments.
It’s this approach that made Quinze & Milan turn into a successful label that guarantees rock ‘n roll, creativity, comfort, quality, excitement and ingenuity.
