Project XYZ

Ami is the new go-to place for unpretentious French dining in the Dutch capital. Studio Modijefsky was asked to create the interior for this all-day bistro in the popular Amsterdam district of De Pijp.


The concept blends the style of a traditional Parisian café with a playful, eclectic modern design. The interior elegantly unites both worlds by mixing glamour with freshness in a palette of soft red tones, vintage orange and crispy blue. Original and timeless materials (marbles, tiles, (lots of) mirrors, woods, polished leathers, wall panelling and textured glass) add a bohemian edge to this Amsterdam café.


The entrance to Ami is located on the corner of a building whose plinth is covered - unusually for the area – in black and orange tiles. The design for the terrace amplifies this chromatic division while hinting at what’s to come inside: black and white striped awnings are paired with warm coral orange, and custom-made wooden furniture is mixed with yellow table tops and black table legs. Lights draped around the building establish the easygoing charm that Ami offers guests throughout the day, whether they come to grab a morning croissant or linger over fruits de mer in the evening. Wooden benches wrapped around the terrace offer an irresistible invitation to pause for an aperitif or coffee.
