Good evening!


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

Remember Restaurant Europa at Het Hem in Zaandam? They had to close the doors due to Corona, but they now opened an even better, pizza, restaurant in Amsterdam-Noord: Euro Pizza. Enjoy!



From Paris to Amsterdam

Luxury scented candle and perfume house Diptyque opened its first boutique in Amsterdam. You can find their whole collection here – including lots of exclusive editions.



Code terracotta

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.

Every year in September Le Labo launches a new City Exclusive, a perfume that is only available during this month.

In The Netherlands you can find them at Skins Cosmetics.


Leading role for photography

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

Everyone who loves dogs, fashion and photography should check out the exhibition ‘Being Human’ by William Wegman in Fotomuseum Den Haag. From September 5th until January 3, 2021.

Hip Hand Sanitizer
