TRIED & TESTED: PINNED UP MARCEL WANDERS

January 31st, 2014

Pinned Up Marcel Wanders

‘If I look back at my life in the 12 seconds before I die, this would definitely be one of the highlights’, says Marcel Wanders during the press preview this morning. After that we were about to explore the biggest exhibition ever of the designer who got his breakthrough in during the design fair in Milan in 1996 with the knotted chair. A chair made of knots and with a lot of love (please read his quote on the picture below). But there’s more. Remember the egg vase? The crochet chair (Beyonce has one)? The Big Bell Chandelier? But we also see details of his design for the Mondrian South Beach Hotel and learn more about the person behind the name via quotes on the wall. There are about Read more…

TO GO: YAYOI KUSAMA EXHIBITION NEW YORK

December 6th, 2013

yayoikusamadavidzwirnernewyork

Yayoi Kusama is a Japanese artist who’s known for her polkadots. She wasn’t always as popular as she is today: during the 60’s her installations in Central Park or other places in New York were removed by the police every time. But as a true artist she kept on introducing the world with her polkadots: ‘A polkadot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polkadots become Read more…

Tomorrow the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven starts and the whole city is devoted to design.

So put the dates in your diary and if you do go to Eindhoven, don’t miss the following hotspots:  Read more…

TO GO: JAIME HAYON FUNTASTICO GRONINGEN

October 15th, 2013

jaimehayongroningermuseumJaime Hayon lives in Valencia (see his home here) and isn’t a boring designer at all. His designs bring a smile on your face: whether it is due to the color or the design itself. It’s less known that he also designs restaurants and other places. For example when the Groninger Museum got a restyling, he was one of the designers who worked on it (together with Studio Job and Maarten Baas). And how about this restaurant I’ve spotted on Yatzer? Another design of this Spaniard. Whoever wants to see his work, has to travel to Groningen. In the same Groninger Museum you can see an overview of his work. Interesting and Read more…

TO GO: CHANEL DE LEGENDE DEN HAAG

October 12th, 2013

Coco Chanel, 1935

No idea what to do this weekend? Today het Gemeentemuseum in The Hague will open Chanel de Legende. This is a huge exhibition about the life of Coco Chanel. You’ll learn everything about this fashion icon and ofcourse you can see many of her designs. Besides fashion, the spotlight also shines on the Chanel no.5 perfume and that other world famous Chanel icon, the 2:55 bag. That the Chanel designs were (and still are) copied many times, is clear. The grand dame didn’t shut her eyes for it and let the world know how she felt about it. For example when Yves Saint Laurent copied one of her designs she said: ‘Saint Read more…
