The Schiphol Departure Lounge 4 Lets Kids Play During Layover

The Schiphol Departure Lounge 4 is a kid-friendly departure area created by Dutch designers Tjep. The redone departure lounge is both kid-friendly and adult-friendly, and features a slide, colorful benches and artwork.

The kid-friendly portion of the Schiphol Departure Lounge 4 comes in the form of the aforementioned slide, the colorful couches and the airplane benches. The green couches may seem like an odd choice, but Tjep chose them to make the area look a bit more natural and outdoorsy. The plane benches were designed to give travelers a view of an airplane, as the lounge itself doesn't offer a direct view of the runway. Adults who could care less about slides or airplane benches should get a kick out of the lounge's over 100 power outlets, and its M.C. Escher artwork hanging from the ceiling.
