Zaanse Sportbank

Near the end of 2015, the now obsolete sports hall ‘De Vang’ in Zaandam will be demolished, including its 50-year-old hardwooden floor. When this news reached Steven de Cleen, owner of design firm PROUDdesign and long-time basketball player at ‘De Vang’, he assembled a team of specialists from Zaandam. Together, they established a collective to save the floor and turn it into designer furniture: the ‘Zaanse Sportbank’. To show the story and the people behind the Zaanse Sportbank, I made this short documentary.
