A BIG YEAHHH for Hayon Studios and their 3 latest designs ... (you know superstar Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon, who is younger than me!)
Gardenia ... a collection of furniture and pots for the garden
The Catch chair for Danish brand & Tradition ... beautifully organically shaped and inspired by 'curves'
and 'Ro' for another Danish brand Fritz Hansen ... where 'Ro' means tranquillity in Danish. I read on the site that the name 'Ro' was chosen because it captures the point of the chair in just two letters, thus reflecting the Nordic approach and concept of beauty... nice we like that!

A ceramic artist and illustrator combined forces ... and see the lovely result. Mitsy Sleurs from ArtMind, who is living and working in Hasselt, Belgium and illustrator Lila Ruby King from the UK made these mugs, plates and bowls.
I wanted to share with you my newest line of work, a collection of tableware made in collaboration with illustrator Lila Ruby King.
They named the collection Sea Level. For the imagery, they went with what they are calling a contemporary taken on Delfts blue. I really like them.

Good morning it is Femke from Femkeido and it's so nice to be here on Bloesem today. Being an Interior Designer, Milan was the
place to be again last week. I traveled to Milan to be inspired at the Salone
del Mobile for the Milan Design Week. In this guest-post for Bloesem, I will be
sharing some of my pictures I took during my visit.
According to Tom Dixon Gold is the new copper .. what do you think?
The buzz at Rosanna Orlandi was cool as always. The best place to start my trip!
I love things colour and weird things... the table setting by my favorite design duo Scholten & Baijngs for Georg at Rosanna Orlandi was exactly my piece of cake.
Great to meet Sander Mulder in person at Tom Dixon. You can see him below walking towards his new clock, TIME, to give it a polish using his own shirt.
Greens and plants we all love them so it was nice seeing some at wallpaper handmade this year.
Mirrors, many mirrors. I love mirrors, I also like the philosophy of mirrors. It is important to have a look in the mirror every now and then. To see what you’re doing and to decide whether you are taking the right steps. In the picture below a mirror at Droog 20+ and a just a random mirror in Ventura Lambrate.
Milan was again great to visit. Very interesting and inspiring over at my blog Femkeido you can read and see more impressions from my trip. ~ Femke

If you are going to the Milan Furniture Fair this year make sure you stop by 010-020 at Via Ventura 3.
Seven young design studios that have one thing in common: they call The Netherlands their home.
For Dutch people it is very clear what the numbers 010 - 020 stand for ... let me help me you a bit... area-codes! 010= Rotterdam and 020= Amsterdam ...
The yellow chair above is by studio WM and below you see pipin hallway by Phil Proctor and the third image is Woodstock by Jeroen van Leur
..010 - 020

Rik and I scrolled around town last weekend and visited P5 (more about this gorgeous shop later this week) and supermama ... there I briefly met one of the designers from Desinere ... he was taking pictures of this gorgeous Paperweight called Rok and I was lucky this morning to find them on their website.
He told me he and his partner will be going to Milan next week to present their work and I am sure it is going to be a big hit! I have fallen in love with all their designs and the one I love most ... is a beautiful woven basket made from leather... unfortunately NO pictures yet ... but I hope soon after the Milan fair.
I wish Desinere success in Milan! It was nice meeting you. ~irene
