Case – Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam

Customer Name

Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam





Project ‘Av in Motion’ 

The influence of new technological possibilities for storytelling is a continuous challenge for the industry, and likewise for education. Together with GLR and studio furniture maker KB|MF, we have created a state-of-the-art educational environment for audiovisual entertainment on the eighth floor of the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam. Here, students and teachers can bring their creative ideas – from concept to final product – to life and experience them (in real-time).

“With the collaboration with D&MS, we have the freedom we need to express our own ideas. It’s crucial to realize projects like these with reliable partners who understand the technology and terminology of where we want to go. And in D&MS, we have definitely found that partner.”

        Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam is at the forefront of employing new technology in the field of AV and Media. Bureau MET (Media, Entertainment, and Technology) conducts a lot of research into these new techniques and products. D&MS was tasked with applying these technologies in a creative environment, with specific attention to:

        • Integrating the facilities non-destructively

        • Modular; autonomous components within a larger whole

        • No compromises in capabilities, quality, and finishing

        • User-friendly for teachers and students


        The most modern and well-equipped educational facility in the field of AV Design.

        Customization is the central theme in this solution. Together with partner KB|MF, a solution has been devised where technology and furniture are integrated into an ergonomic and future-proof solution. The classrooms and facilities are tailor-made for various educational needs, and with a simple ‘press of a button,’ everything is configured.

        With this solution, GLR remains capable of implementing technological developments in the educational environment. GLR sees this freedom reflected in all aspects, including infrastructure, furnishings, control systems, workstations, and the associated professional creative software packages.



        The result is impressive. Currently, GLR is the most modern and well-equipped educational facility in the field of AV design, allowing students to create beautiful productions in a 4K workflow. Here, students and teachers can bring their creative ideas – from concept to final product – to life and experience them in (real-time).
