We Interrupt This Program…

For a super cute design bulletin (not from Dutch Design Week, from Marilyn, baby!).


Just look at what Marilyn Patrizio found at a local Japanese market near her home, designed by Masahiro Mori (whom I just love, I have one of his porcelain cups on a shelf in my home). She was nice enough to surf the web and find more for all of us bird lovers – right here at Unica Home. Aren’t these the cutest? Great find, Marilyn!

Now back to design week!

Dala By Teun Fleskens and Ramon van den Heuvel: Dutch Design Week

This table was a real beauty in person, the photos (in my opinion) do it NO justice. It’s called the “Dala” and was designed by Teun Fleskens (pictured below) and Ramon van den Heuvel. The inside is black which represents “the creativity that comes from within and lies in the dark. This comes to the suface through the mandalas, which stand for development. Each side of the table is different. The table is in motion, just like creativity,” Teun says. It can also be customized to fit the dimensions of your space, from a large dining room to a tiny kitchen.

Meet Teun Fleskens… Oh, and if you’re interested in this table, you can contact him directly at teun[at]nannanatural[dot]nl. I couldn’t locate a website, sorry.


Psst: Teun designs faux bois nail tips, also on display in the Dutch Living Room. You can select from a complete range of wood types – they are called Nanna Natural. See…

Reykjavik Product: Dutch Design Week

Time for a little creative play with Reykjavik Product. From pre-colored wallhangings and wallpaper in eye popping colors and throws that doubled as art (the one displayed were of parakeets in yellow with aqua and lots of silver metallic thread ) to prints and decals that you can color yourself, there was lots to see in this fully saturated space.

Pottery Supreme: Dutch Design Week


Care for a spot of tea my dear? Pottery Supreme is another company I first learned about at Dutch Design Week – they presented in the Dutch Living Room. I loved the velvety vessels best – they were stacked high to form a whimsical sculpture, and the best part, Pottery Supreme calls them, “Holly”. (I was pleasantly surprised by that, as I don’t come across my name very often). I couldn’t locate the designer for a quick chat, so I don’t have much information to report, so sorry for that. But if you’re interested in Pottery Supreme, I’m sure you can contact them directly via their website to obtain more information.
