MONDAY MEMO #05
Welcome to the fifth edition of Monday Memo. A diary of fun things: new openings I’m excited about, exhibitions I like to go to, products I love, initiatives that caught my eye, news I want to share and much more. All related to hotspots, design and travel of course. Every two weeks 10 things, so let’s go!
Pizza in Amsterdam-Noord
From Paris to Amsterdam
As long as Antwerp and Brussels are code orange we have to travel to alternative cities like Hasselt. Check out the new Z33 Huis voor Actuele Kunst, Design & Architectuur designed by Italian architect Francesca Torzo.

Get some work done
The scent of Seoul
Every year in September Le Labo launches a new City Exclusive, a perfume that is only available during this month. This year they were inspired by Seoul and created a perfume called Citron 28 with ginger, jasmin, sandalwood and musk. Only available until September 30th. In The Netherlands you can find them at Skins Cosmetics.
Leading role for photography
BredaPhoto starts on September 9th (until October 25th) and explores the world of tomorrow by exhibitions like ‘Power to the Models’, where Jan Hoek gives his models the full control on their portrait. Also check out Erik Kessels ‘Destroy my Face’ where he plays with how far plastic surgery can go.
Respect for nature
Kikubari in The Hague is a beautifully curated store highlighting the work of designers that make ceramics, incense and magazine with love for nature and humankind.
A Weimaraner named Man Ray
