Lotte van Laatum
I have written about the Dutch designer Lotte van Laatum before on Bloesem, but I'm more then happy to do it again today on Bloesem, because this women really has a lot of talent!
During the Milan Furniture fair 2008 Lotte introduced her interior collection Room for improvement = 'a design philosophy, a language based on humanity which connects all products within the collection' ... the collection consists of products for the home, ranging from furniture and lighting to accessories...
...like the beautiful 'Bloei! sofa' and and 'Watt's new?' lights...and these lights are right up my alley...I love the simpleness of the design and even more when I read Lotte's idea behind these beauties: "many people already apply energy saving lamps in their homes, but often the shape of the lamp and the lampshade do not match, so let's keep it simple and take full advantage of the technique itself for the design..."
...and how gorgeous is this Treecabinet, made of Dutch elm, the wood came from sick Elms who had to be cut already in 1999...very good re-usage I would say! Here you can Lotte van Laatum her website and here is the special website for Room for Improvement. Enjoy!
