We like to help audiences in understanding the world better. We do this by translating stories into optimal visitor experiences. Experiences that engage all your senses.
Our team likes to delve deep to uncover the unique identity of stories - whether they are technical stories or stories that address current topics in society - small or large. With the aim of making the story’s message come through in all elements, interactions, and even the smallest details.
“We believe that when you understand the world better, you also take care of it better, with more awareness. And we want to leave this world a better place for the next generation. Bruns is that next generation too.”
We have been active in the museum world since 1963. Since then, we have grown into a globally respected family business with a strong reputation in both the Netherlands and abroad. We like to tell our story from national monument De Ploeg, our home base since 2017, which we are immensely proud of. This historic building, designed by architect Gerrit Rietveld, is the perfect location for us to listen to stories, to tell them and translate them into experiences. Here, we warmly welcome our clients, suppliers, leading design agencies, and everyone involved in developing and producing exhibitions for museums, science centres, visitor and information centres and brand experiences.
After sitting vacant for 10 years, De Ploeg’s function as a factory has been restored. The move to this top monument means a total surface area of no less than 11,000m2. Completely surrounded by nature in the form of the beautiful Ploeg Park, designed by landscape architect Mien Ruys.
This historic complex houses our office, production halls and warehouse. In the entrance hall, a visitor centre has been created that showcases the location’s illustrious cultural and historical past based on the theme ‘Rietveld & Ruys’. The visitor centre is also our interactive showroom, where the disciplines that Bruns specialises in are displayed. Here, we are happy to meet anyone who wants to learn more about our state-of-the-art applications for exhibitions and interactive furniture.
De Ploeg is Rietveld’s only industrial building and boasts unusual features, such as semi-circular saw-tooth roofs and elongated glass façades that are north facing to maximize access to the calming north light.
“An architectural gem in terms of light, air and spaciousness; we are grateful every day that this is our workspace.”
