Flatter – Vanessa Hannen


This is Vanessa Hannen and her accessories holder, “Flatter”. Women usually hide their bags and jewelry because they do not have a place to display them as part of the decor. Flutter was designed to change that. Silver butterflies in stainless steel dance on the wall, creating a dreamy atmosphere with a fluorinated layer on the back. The reflection works with little daylight and can be created in different colours. ‘Flatter’ plays with the light – related to the angle the viewer is standing and where the light is falling – the intensity of the color and the position of the shadows changes. Can be used to hold accessories or to display alone.

Tafel – Mareanne Bosch


You may find this table “Tafel” by Mareanne Bosch quite interesting. Mareanne chiselled an 18th century coffee table by hand into the sleek shape of an industrially manufactured aluminum table. Merging a clean modern archetype and an antique stylized shape, both need one another to continue standing.

Hide and See – Jetske Verdonk

Another clever graduation project from the Design Academy Eindhoven was “Hide and See”, furniture designed by Jetske Verdonk – where storage becomes a part of the decorum. Constantly packed with inquiring minds, this project was a huge crowd pleaser.

Sharing Chair – Mieke Meijer


“Sharing Chair” from Mieke Meijer.

Mieke sees a trend in the Netherlands – people are becoming more and more self-centered. She hopes that this chair, if used in public places, could lead to change, helping people see that sharing is a good thing.

“It’s a challenge to design mature products that make people realize that sharing them is a fun thing” Mieke says. Because this is a rocking chair and is a bit unstable, it’s the perfect chair for a waiting room because it “makes people aware of each other and forces them to start a conversation”, Mieke adds.
