Just before the weekend starts I would to devote some time and space to an extremely talented Dutch Lady , Kiki van Eijk! She graduated Cum Laude at the design academy Eindhoven in 2000. I'm such a big fan of her work...here are just a few of the amazing designs she did in the year 2007:
The Soft Clock...a ceramic clock with all the details and feelings of a soft clock made of textile. Also the white shelf is a ceramic one, it looks like it's made out of something really soft. Kiki would like to see the shelve function as an altar for ones most precious belongings.
A dressing table with all the details and feelings of a soft drawer made of textile. The drawers are in 2 different sizes to stall your beauty products.
The Bottles Lamps are inspired on the beautiful glass bottles of medieval times. These bottles were mainly used to store herbs and liquor. The subtle contrast of the matte and clear glass gives a magic appearance, but also shows patterns inspired on the scenery around the table and kitchen in medieval times. Herbs, kitchen tools, sugar-tongs, deers of pate and cups form a neat play of light.
A carpet made of bricks, designed for "Brick, the exhibition" which was held in Rotterdam last year...I think you probably by now agree with me on Kiki's incredible talent...don't forget to have a look at the about page, it shows some great images from her studio, herself and her even as talented partner Joost van Bleiswijk.
Enjoy the weekend!
