We create transformational spatial experiences for people, museums and brands.





is the exhibition design studio led by Martin Sämmer, based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Martin offers a unique approach to exhibition design by telling stories through well-designed multilayered spatial experiences.

Before starting his studio in 2018, Martin designed exhibitions for the renowned exhibition designers Kossmann.dejong in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the United States for almost a decade.

The right team for every project

MAF assembles dedicated, skilled and enthusiastic core teams including spatial and graphic designers, content managers and project managers. In addition, we select our wider team members dedicated to the needs and content of each specific project. 

We have a large group of trusted partners (friends) that we collaborate with on many projects. these are light-designers, filmmakers, conservators, multimedia designers, writers, interpretive planners, editors, artists, craftspeople, (landscape) architects, engineers, AV-media hardware planers, evaluators and educators.

In the concept stage of the project we will discuss the setup of the best possible team, custom-made for your project. This could be local partners in The Netherlands (close to our studio) or partners near the actual venue, which can be more efficient.

Creative direction 


During the entire design and build process, M A F has the creative direction over the entire design. This means that we keep track of content and design over all parties involved. Through this, we achieve an integral design, involving all needed disciplines.
