King Willem-Alexander opens Museum Voorlinden

June 13, 2016

Landgoed Voorlinden is located in the dunes of Wassenaar. A country house was built on the estate in 1912.

The interior consists of a lot of oak, which is then finished to a dark brown whole.
This estate was purchased in 2011 by Rotterdam's industrialist Joop van Caldenborgh (the founder of Caldic) with the aim of making his enormous art collection visible.
The country house will be a restaurant and a museum has been built next to the country house.

Because the dark colors form a gloomy whole, Joop has decided that the original oak color should reappear.
Because this is an immense task for the entire country house, various options have been tried, such as different types of paint strippers and abrasives.
Ultimately, the IBIX® system emerged as the best. With the combination of an IBIX® 25P HD and a Rotair MDVN 36AP not only a good working speed could be achieved. The oak wood is also fully respected so that a nice smooth finish is ultimately achieved. This enormous project was carried out under the own management of Caldic Collection and has now been successfully completed.

Outside, various stone ornaments have also been cleaned with the IBIX® system.
