Studio Thier & Van Daalen

Another stop along Design Kwartier was Studio Thier & Van Daalen. They fascinate us with their interior objects that incorporate elements of nature with a play of colour, light and reflection. The duo behind Studio Thier&vanDaalen, use individual strengths to come up with their unusual and intriguing designs, Ruben being more focused on the technical aspects, while Iris plays with how the design looks and takes shape. 

With the end goal set at surprising people, Iris and Ruben are constantly working on new ways and areas to use their designs in. Their common interest colours and structures can be seen in the on going theme through all their works.

A contemporary twist at home

Bloesem living | Furniture: Contemporary lighting by Wo and We

Based in France, Wo & We produces a collection of hand crafted contemporary lamps or rather sculptural lighting fixtures. The lamps are attached to the wall and are made up of adjustable "limbs" that be moved around to fit the space you are in.. or if you wish to shine a spotlight on a particular area.

Whether by the bed or in the dining area, these lamps are 100% cool and take up zero floor space which is already a plus factor in any home.

Vij5

Bloesem living | Dutch design at Design Kwartier in The Hague: Vij5

If Vij5 sounds familiar, it's because we've wrote a post or 2 about the design duo on Bloesem. Walking around The Hague during Design Kwartier we somehow managed to walk right past Arjan van Raadshooven, half of the Vij5 duo, who very kindly showed us the way to where Vij5 had set up their little home they had set up and decorated in all their products, which was one of the stops along the Design Kwartier trail.

Designers themselves, Arjan and Anieke design most of the products in the collection, which consists of interior design pieces. They also work together with many young designers to broaden the collection. Most recently, the team's newspaper wood designs have peaked our interest.

With the endless possibilities for Newspaper wood, a new material invented by Mieke Meijer in collaboration with Vij5, the NewspaperWood company was set up. Turning newspapers back into wood in the form of a log and cutting them revealing the rings of a tree resembling the wood texture, genius. Then using the newspaper wood in a series of cabinets by Breg Hanssen. This shows the true beauty of team work don't you think?

Minimal & playful furniture

Bloesem living | Quickstart: Furniture by And New

Anyone who's seen the Bloesem space knows about our love for the trestle legs that hold up our table tops. Thin and elegant, they don't take up much leg space and gives the space a light and airy feeling. And New gives us that same feeling. Using steel, Jo and Mirka have a minimal design aesthetic topped with a beautiful colour range.

Their powder coated designs bring a playful element to any space, with the use of colour and geometry in form. Produced in small batches in Britain, each piece is unique.. we love the playfulness they have injected into the pieces of furniture we view more as practical pieces in our home.

Bloesem living | Link Love: Popcorn monsoon by Jolene Carlier

One thing that made us stop and stare was the Popcorn Monsoon, just sitting there being awesome and popping corn as we walked around The Hague during Design Kwartier. By far the best looking and most fun popcorn machine we have seen. Now we love the process of popping the corn just as much as we do eating it.

Father's day gift idea - stationery dad would totally approve of.

Sleekest minimal magazine rack around

A chair that provides privacy in quilted comfort.

After visiting the Citroen restaurant in Amsterdam (which we highly reccommend), here's another restaurant furnished in pink - it works!

Exquisite tea strainers

Creating floral patterns - a summer time activity to get into.

Have you been keeping up with the Bloesem classes? The next class will be food styling and mobile photography - our 9th class and we're still meeting so many budding food photographers!

Experimental designs by Roos Meerman

Bloesem living | Dutch Design: Experimental designs by Roos Meerman

Last week we did a sneaky little preview of our favourite stop along the Design Kwartier journey, but let's keep on the trail of Dutch design. Even if you did not manage to head to Design Kwartier, let us bring you on a virtual tour recap of all the amazing designs that were present during the 3-day event.

Dutch designer Roos Meerman works in what we would call the experimental realm, her designs work with the development of materials and technology. Ever gave a second thought to how patterns come about? Roos' Canorgraphy project shows us what sounds look like, a machine she developed moves tools such as pencils and pens on a surface based on sound waves produced by a set of speakers to create patterns on textile or paper. Imagine turning a song into a pattern on a scarf.. email Roos for possibilities!

Getting motivated: That extra push!

Bloesem living | Getting motivated

Remember the last issue of the Bloesem Gazette, Volume 3? The cover featured a down right motivational poster (a.k.a the Pushing Beauty Manifesto) we hung in the Bloesem studio for that extra push on slow days. I mean if you were thinking of taking a break or putting something off till tomorrow, but then you look up and see "Get on with it" in all caps, that's pretty good motivation I would say. The next best thing would be to have someone shout it at you, but that's just too much effort for both parties..

Michelle D'Avella is the designer of said motivational poster and other than pushing people to achieve their best, she's also pushing beauty - not literally but that's the name of webshop, where she does sell beautiful prints and healing tools. If you are feeling in need of a little something something, Michelle can help you to calm down or get inspired, whichever would best suit the situation you are in.

Make your own wallpaper

Bloesem living | Sponsor spotlight: Wallpapered

We've been really keen on wallpapers recently, especially with all the Bloesem-related moving and thinking about how to change up the look of different spaces. Other than painting, wallpapers can make for a great decor alternative but I think you all know as well as we do how hard it is to find that exact wallpaper that will fit the perfect decor you have dreamt about for awhile. We have seen a few nice ones online but there's always something that doesn't look quite right and if we're going to spend that much time and effort, it has to be just right, am i right? 

Wallpapered allows you to customize and create your own wallpaper just by uploading an image. How amazing is that, to have a wallpaper designed by yourself or even an illustration by a friend or your child in the kids room. It will definitely make the room that much more close to your heart.

Or if you are an avid traveler or just fond of traveling like us, the world map wallpaper is a great way to keep that wanderlust going 24/7 or you can even use it to mark down (nicely) the places you've been!

No watering needed!

Bloesem living | Quickstart: Tableau by Pikaplant

The fact is that plants are beautiful but they don't stay that way too long, especially when you forget to water them 3 days in a row because you were swamped at the office. It can sometimes be tough keeping plants alive, we know that for a fact, especially when the weather isn't always on your side.

Tableau by Pikaplant is an automatic (music to our ears) plant watering tray. It mimics the natural wet-dry cycle of groundwater, for healthier herbs and house plants. It uses no electricity and waters up to 4 plants. We've got smart phones, now we've got smart plants.. the simple design also makes this a great addition to any window sill or office table. We won't have the fear of plants dying on us before we remember to water them. Definitely something exciting to start the week off with! 

We should support great inventions so here's their kickstarter campaign..
