Face-to-face a new designer's profile with Marly Gommans

Marlygommans

 

I love it when someone gives a lot of character to a home. And Marly Gommans certainly did that to her home in the Netherlands. The hand painted mural, the little things on the wall and the sublime pantone painted staircase make this week's house visit very interesting ...

Marly Gommans is a fashion and furniture designer, with a special interest in Cats! Yes cats, but she doesn't like their plastic litterboxes and ugly scratching poles ... so she designed some good-looking ones that are welcome in her home. And while she was at it she decided to design a great cat cushion too. Marly interned at the famous Kiki van Eijk studio and now makes her own name into the world of design with her funky products.

Please join us for an interview with Marly and have a look how she lives... right here... Mar.ly's collection is available at BijzonderMooi ~ in Dutch ~ in English

Coffeeklatch a creative chitchat

Coffeeklatsch_blue

Not sure where I was ... probably living under a rock :) but glad I found Coffeeklatch from Belgium today ... wow such a beautiful source of inspiration and eye-candy . Of course the site reminds me of the German FvF but we can never get enough of these kind of sites that gives you an intimate insight in the lives of creative people. 

Coffeeklatch is a creative chitchat started by journalist Magali Elali and photographer Bart Kiggen. Coffeeklatch stands for ‘slow journalism using a fast medium’. Just sit back, relax, have a cup of coffee and enjoy.              [MORE IMAGES after the break]

Face-to-face a new designer's profile with Ontwerplabel Vij5

And a little extra today ... this short video made for us by Jonna van Hesteren

Morning, how are you all doing? I am feeling much better and am glad to be back to work this morning.... sometimes I find it hard to really call it 'work' because it often feels more like a 'hobby'. Yes lucky me to be able to do all day what I really enjoy doing... Like preparing a new post for the Designer Visit column in which my two friends, Marjon and Sandra, from the Netherlands visit well-known Dutch designers in their homes.

Jonna van Hesteren often assists Marjon in her photography job and this time she created a fun short video for Bloesem ... giving a bit of extra and real life experience to today's interview

OntwerplabalVij5

Today I am sharing the visit to ontwerplabel Vij5's home. It's not the first time I am talking about the work of Arjan and Anieke here on Bloesem. Ontwerplabel Vij5 often collaborates with other Dutch designers, who we have met at previous interviews. My favorite is perhaps the collaboration with Ontwerpuo which resulted in the gorgous Lloop lamp ... would you like to see how Arjan and Anieke live and what their ideas and drives in life are ... then head over to the face-to-face page right here

We thank Marjon and Sandra for their lovely contributions of designer profiles this year. We are absolutely grateful having friends all over the world that keeps us connected.

NEW: Unstationary by ontwerpduo

Unstationery
{image by Jurianne Matter}

Papers, soft colors and simple designs, what's not to love everything about Unstationary by Ontwerpduo. Starting our own stationary line has always been in the works here at Bloesem, and seeing great products like these makes us want to work on our line even more.

The first thing that comes to mind when I see grid paper is math class in high school. Countless doodles and drawings on them when I should be writing down numbers and equations. What about you? A familiar feeling and I love the simplicity of the grid design for note pads and little cards for little messages.

Check out their collection of work on their website. Take a look at the 'Light Forest' which to me is almost dream-like.   [CONTINUE READING]
