Project Description

NIO House Rotterdam, the first location in the Netherlands for rapidly expending electric car manufacturer NIO from China. The space designed by renowned architect MVRDV mixes industrial and bold expressions of Rotterdam with the sophisticated yet warm aesthetics of core values of the NIO brand.

MVRDV designed with The Good Floor a gradient floor overlab that contributes to its concept of a total design: floor, walls and ceiling with a light to warm approach of colors. This embraces NIO’s signature approach to its worldwide retail locations to create an interior that contributes to the lively hood of its location at the city’s most prestigious shopping street, the Meent.

‘Blue Sky is Coming’ describes what NIO thrives every day worldwide for a beautiful, positive and durable future. These core values of NIO meets exactly the same philosophy we have. A match made in blue sky’s.
