Four posts in One today that are all being connected with each other ... I start with studio mhl ... after graduating from the design Academy in Eindhoven and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, Monique van Bruggen started her own jewellery label in 2004 called mhl. Together with fellow jewellery designer Bonne van der Ree she shares a studio/showroom in Amsterdam called Studio Bonbon.
But perhaps you have heard her name somewhere else recently ... could be possible that you have seen Monique at work at Studio IJM, the well-known and probably the best styling studio from the Netherlands ...
and while reading Monique's beautiful blog I discovered another talent and from Monique ... namely designing her boy friends website 'eb ontwerp' ...and this is how I found the cool furniture designs by him, Erik Bakker.
I immediately recognized the beautiful ceramic vase on the table, yes it is from Mara Skujeniece from her Spool series. It's not the first time I'm writing about this amazing artisit, I really love her work (the new website looks great!) and I am so happy that I now know of a place where I can buy here collection online .... Zilu
And this is the fourth part of my post today for you ... Zilu a new Dutch online webshop founded by Ghazaleh Dabiran and her husband. Zilu is a place where you can buy beautiful handmade products made with care and from very high quality. Some of the designers at Zilu will be very familiar for you but some of you, like studio mhl will probably be a nice addition to your wishlist!
