Subject

On the 6th floor of the Johan Cruyff ArenA, at the entrance of the VIP area, there is a brand new, luxuriously executed hospitality desk. You wouldn't say at first glance that it's made of waste wood. The desk is designed and built, with the help of industrial robots, by researchers and students of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.
