Dutch design at New York International Gift Fair

Scarves

{WorldSkinColor scarves by Reineke Otten}

This coming weekend I will be joining my friend Jurianne Matter and Tuttobene across the Atlantic to New York. From 19. - 22. August Jurianne will be showing her products at the NY Gift Fair (Booth 3762 ) together with 15 other very talented Dutch designers and three design labels from NL. (ps. if you are looking for me you can probably find me too at the booth number 3762)

Tuttobene is a platform for Design based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. They organize design exhibitions around the world and their aim is to connect young creative talents with the industry, marketing organisations and/or retail partners. All the links to the participating Dutch designers can be found here

I will use this week to try and meet people I have met via Bloesem throughout the years but also to meet new people, see what is happening in the world of design in NY and hopefully get new ideas and inspiration for my own future with Bloesem ~irene

Yes finally after almost 10 years I am going to visit New York again. No not today or tomorrow but in August. Today I am flying to my own hometown Amsterdam first, spending time with my family and friends. Then two weeks vacation in Spain, back to Amsterdam and on 17th of August I will fly to NY.

I truly hope I can meet many of you dear readers, bloggers or old friends.

But I am not going alone no... I will be joining my friend and paper designer Jurianne Matter. She will be showcasing her gorgeous paper products at the NY gift Fair 2012... below a little sneak peek...

Where are we staying, we don't know yet. But you can HELP ... if you know anyone who lives in NY and wants to swap apartments with me for one week then please let me know. I can offer a great apartment in the canal area of Amsterdam. pls email me if have any tips or ideas.

~ Happy 4th of July ~

Monday's quick start: Young designers at Fiera Rho

Fiera_eikels

A little while ago I told you how my friend Lisette Scheers, who lives here in Kuala Lumpur had visited the Milan Furniture fair and she made some fantatsic images of the things she liked. You might remember this post about Paola Lenti's new collection or Ventura Lambrate...  today just a summary of all the designs she saw  at Fiera Rho, in lIsette her words: "This year not so inspiring - a lot of the same - and everyone uses the same colours : fluo, light blue, ocre yellow and light green" ... not sure of you agree ? I hear what she is saying but I do like these warm and cozy little stools... called the Bambi chairs by Takeshi Sawada.

Milan 2012: Studio Zeta

Copper_bike

And speaking of copper ... how about a whole bike made of copper! While Lisette was in Milan visiting the Milan furniture fair 2012 she spotted Dutch designer Bart van Heesch at Studio zeta. He was one of fifty recent Design Academy Eindhoven graduates chosen to exhibit in Milan. And although he was there showcasing his luxaflex made from circles of brass  (see the images below in this post) . I also love to show this incredible bike and the cool accessories from him.

Another graduate who made it to THE '50' in Milan is Eva Smeltkop with her Refrigerator 02. A small, transparent storage appliance, in which sweets and snacks not only keep well, but also look good. Thank you Lisette for the images!
