Amsterdam’s famous Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art originally opened its doors to the public in 1895 to exhibit the new, “modern” art that was creating a furor throughout Europe. A century later, the old Museum itself was in need of modernization. Architect Mels Crouwel had a vision for the new Stedelijk Museum, in particular the façade, which had to be a massive work of art. It turned out that Twaron® was the key to make it happen. We took up the challenge and are proud of the result. The new façade of the Stedelijk Museum is made out of a total length of 8,500 km of Twaron® para-aramid fibers and Tenax® carbon fiber. Those fibers will lead you from Amsterdam to Tokyo. Or it can create the largest composite building in the world. Check out the Stedelijk Museum Movie.
