I’m heading off to Hamburg now (last minute decision since I’ve been dying to get up there), so I won’t be around to post tomorrow. I’ll return on Thursday with more from Dutch Design Week along with some photos from Hamburg and shots of all the cool design stores I’m hoping to find there (fingers crossed anyway!).
See you Thursday, November 9th!
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!

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.
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.
