Dutch Design Year in Eindhoven

Dutchdesignyear_new

Dutch Design Year is a store started by a designer herself Marleen Kurvers (see her gorgeous tube frame light below) . Located in Eindhoven, where talented Ducth Designers come together to showcase their products. Marleen mixes the old and the new, where you can also find a collection of vintage products. Great idea Marleen.

Irene and I share the love for wooden products, so I can see why she picked these pictures. I can easily see these wooden pieces in our office. I also think that, that the geometric flower vase would be a very unique addition for a centerpiece don’t you think? ~Sufiya

I love this idea of adding the glass tube frames to the colored cords, Marleen Kurvers is the designer. A light that is reduced to its very essence: one tube of glass, one wire and one contact pin. Depending on the model, the light can be used in different ways by twisting or turning the frame. The tube framed light defines simplicity in production and functionality. Available in different colors.

Atelier Solarshop in Antwerp

AtelierSolar

I already knew Antwerp is one of the coolest places in Europe .. lot's of design and fashion boutiques and the best croquettes in the world :):) ... the next time i am visiting I will definetly make a stop -over at Atelier Solar shop

What started as a pop-up shop I believe has turned into a permanent shop selling fantastic vintage pieces. The "PLIA" foldable chair by Giancarlo Piretti for Castelli has been on my wish-list for a long time. And look at the acapulca chairs in the image all the way below ... grap them, they are to cool!

Shop Crush

B1

I have such a crush on Dunlin, a fantastic shop that calls Sydney, Australia home. Dunlin has been curated by New York and Sydney based architectural interior designers Nicholas Barber and Alexandra Bond. The products are sourced from all over, and provide new essential classics for the contemporary home that were previously unavailable to the Australian market. It really is a lovely collection of goodies. My favorites are the six tasting spoons, the glass and steal drink dispenser, and the chatham bone china berry baskets.

I have had a crush on the shop Objects of Use for quite a while now - I just love the concept. Everything about this shop is something I would seriously devour - from the cooking utensils to the cleaning brushes. I understand that loving a shop that is focused on gorgeously designed tools for use, or as some would see it...work - doesn't exactly say "exciting individual" but I can't hear you anyways, because I am too busy drooling over these garden shears. - Tiffany King

Stop Shop: Woonwinkel in Portland

Woonwinkel

Although you probably never have visited Portland you probably know by now that this is one of the hot design spots in the USA. Many talented designers and crafts people live here and recently a wonderful shop has been added to this design district. The shop is called Woonwinkel, which means Home Shop in Dutch, yes funny enough there is a Dutch link...

Joyce de Lange visited Woonwinkel and asked owners a couple of questions. Jocyce also took these images for us. You can find Joyce right here on twitter

Woonwinkel2

What's your name and of your business partner?

Erica Essink and Kristin Van Buskirk are the owners

Are you both from Portland?

Yes (although I grew up in the midwest I’ve lived in Portland for 17 years) ..............READ MORE>>>

Why did you choose a Dutch name for your shop? 

I was living in The Netherlands, working as a designer at Nike’s European Headquarters when we cooked up the idea of this shop. Since I was learning Dutch at the time, and for lack of an official name for the shop, we used the word “woonwinkel”. But somehow it stuck. It’s both a nod to the Dutch design that insipres us, and a word that, in english, sounds pleasant and light. Because although we’re serious about excellent design, we also want our shop to reflect the levity that makes a house a home.

When exactly did you open the shop? May 12, 2011 

Did you travel to Europe to meet de designers of the products?

Although we haven’t personally met most of the European designers that created our products, it was while living and traveling in Europe that we discovered most of the products and became familiar with the designers. We were incredibly inspired by such design shows as the Milan Furniture Fair and Dutch Design Week, and also some really fantastic retailers of excellent design like Frozen Fountain (Amsterdam), Mint (London), and Spazio Rosanna Orlandi (Milan).

Shop Stop: wonderwood in Amsterdam

Wonderwood001

*Guest post by Marjon Hoogervorst aka Vorstin

Last month I was working in Amsterdam and had to stop by this shop/gallery WonderWood  to take a look! I've been here before during the Elle Dutch Design Week and fell in love.

This shop and gallery is specialised in vintage plywood chairs and tables from the '40's till '60's and has a collection with over 100 vintage plywood design chairs.

Wonderwood006

On the outside you see typically wooden window frames and inside the amazing old characteristic details on the ceiling! You feel the passion from the owner here everywhere! So to bring a little bit from this passion over I shot some snapshots and wrote something about it... Read more....

I  love this lamp sculpture called "Standing Drawings" from Jeroen Henneman. The artwork behind the lamp with the beautiful shadow effects is from Aonoine Wiertz.

Wonderwood

I  find this bookshelf amazing! They told me this is the last one... unfortunately this one is to wide for the place where I want to hang this wonderful piece of art.

Wonderwood002

The most inspiring wall for me is the one in the back. Here you see some artworks from different designers collected on the wall. I  want to buy them all!

Wonderwood003

Chairs everywhere: the different shapes are stunning!

When you leave the shop you can leave a message on this porcelain note-board.

A little while ago I started this new column on Bloesem and I do think it's nice to get an idea of how products are being displayed in actual shops...not everything should be about online and the internet right? I came accross Bl-ij via OrangeFarmHouse and loved the pictures that I saw especially beacuse I just found this designer online and loved her paper-cups and then seeing them in the windowdisplay over at BL-ij. ...image below are the paper-cups by Yvette Jacobs.
