Amsterdam’s leading luxury hotel, Conservatorium, is offering guests a special “Studio Drift Discovery” package that was conceived in partnership with neighboring modern and contemporary art institution Stedelijk Museum. The package highlights “Coded Nature,” the first ever solo exhibition from celebrated Dutch artists and Studio Drift founders Lonneke Gordijn and Ralph Nauta. It is available for the duration of the exhibit now through August 26, and enables guests to enjoy a variety of luxe hotel amenities, as well as VIP access to both the exhibit and to Studio Drift, the renowned Amsterdam-based art collective.
The “Studio Drift Discovery” package includes:

- Daily breakfast in the Brasserie
- An exclusive tour through exhibition ‘Coded Nature’ by Stedelijk tour guide
- A behind the scenes experience with the Studio Drift artists

The “Studio Drift Discovery” package is available from €1420 per night in a Grand Duplex Suite. Including VAT, excluding 6% city tax, subject to availability. Kindly note that this package needs to be reserved 21 days in advance.
The work of Gordijn and Nauta occupies a unique place at the intersection between tech art, performance and bio-design, and engages with contemporary topics such as sustainability, the meaning of natural processes for today’s environment, and issues raised by the use of augmented reality. Both Gordijn and Nauta have served as “Conservatorium Ambassadors” since June 2015, and the hotel has featured multiple pieces of their artwork on property including “Ghost Chairs,” “Nola” and “Fragile Future.”
Highlights of the exhibition at Stedelijk Museum include “Fragile Future Chandelier 3.5 (2012)” and “Drifter,” a giant, floating concrete monolith that made its world premiere at New York’s Armory show in 2017. In total, eight of Studio Drift’s room-filling installations and a selection of films make up the exhibition.
