Gilian Schrofer is responsible for some of Holland's most remarkable interiors - ranging from the ultra modern and globally renowned Supperclub, to more timeless, classic designs like café Morlang.

Although very distinct and diverse, they all share a sense of contemporary sophistication. But for Schrofer, merely looking hip is not good enough.

Prior to his interior design career, Gilian Schrofer was a successful chef, a patissier and the owner of a catering company.

In 2004 Schrofer left Concrete, the interior design company that he co-founded -- and started a new company: Concern. Among numerous other assignments, Concern designed the impeccable interiors for the advertising agency Roorda, in Amsterdam.

Alongside his design work, Gillian Schrofer continually strives to up the ante of the design discipline across the board - teaching at several academies and as a board-member on various committees.

Although he recognizes the conceptual strength of Dutch design, Schrofer believes that a good concept is only the beginning.
