The ‘crossover collective’ is a social machine that focuses on an ancient form of communication as social activity: collective embroidery. The machine was designed by Floor Nijdeken and on show during the tradeshow ShowUp, which was held in Amsterdam at the 2nd and 3th of February. Like this focus on transfering knowledge or ‘heritage’ by… Continue reading collect moments

for now

I’ll have to wait… I’ll come down After a hectic, fun month and a lot more exciting stuff is about to happen. The styling and photography of Lab 71 with its calming, soothing fairytale atmosphere is the eyecandy that’s perfect for today. A little peace and quiet time. It’s so nice to walk through Frieda… Continue reading for now

craft, colour and cups

Totally in love with the ceramics designed by Alissa and Nienke. The thing I love most about these cups is the soft blended color tones on which they state on their website: ‘We love crafts, colors and cups. This is coming together in a material experiment with pigment and porcelain; a research about the flowing… Continue reading craft, colour and cups

‘On a wednesday’ is an attempt to collect stories. Stories give a sneak peak into someone’s life. Just by asking ‘what are you doing’ on a Wednesday. It’s such a charming simple idea. The project is created by Dave Dawson and Bekka Palmer. Striking. via swiss-miss


Totally up my alley is the work of Verena Michels, shown at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Graduation Show. Just fell head over heals for her use of colour, the beautiful little book added to the garments and the feel of her sweater. The total concept behind this project is making it top-notch; experiment and research the… Continue reading mix

little things

[Translation] Beautiful, old, wooden grandstands are entered through a little narrow staircase. The trees rage right beside you. You look upward. If they are smart they choose downwind, after the toss. by Nico Dijkshoorn from ‘Kleine Dingen’ (Little Things)

to the wonder

Just a beauty this movie poster design. A very subtle fold, fading typography and gloomy colours. This graphic design has it all that I might watch this one. Might not be a suitable film for a fun night though.

Just a beautiful handkerchief for waving and celebrating out loud or to dry your tears and give some comfort. Today I could need one for both purposes. Design by Nienke Sybrandy

Fun! This series of urban and rural landscape pictures with ‘Momo’ hiding somewhere in the frame. Andrew Knapp – an Ontario based graphic designer – came up with this idea when he discovered his dog would hide when fetching sticks, instead of returning them. Follow Momo’s hide and seek on GoFindMomo; ‘the playful adventures of… Continue reading elusive


Striking, intriguing beauty; this first film production ‘lina’ by Thirza Schaap. Just astounded by her mind’s eye and her soft, quirky touch in both styling and images.

brief encounter

Extreme precise staging in magic-hour twilight are two of the key ingredients for the jaw-dropping pictures of Gregory Crewdson. What a surprise to stumble upon the documentary by Ben Shapiro just zapping around in a lost quarter of time. The documentary is filmed over a period of then years, showing the artistic processes behind the… Continue reading brief encounter

soft whispers

In this contemplative end-of-year mood these serene, soft pictures of the ‘Full Moon Story’ by Kim Kyoungsoo is the spot-on visualisation. Asked by Vogue Korea he realized a series of portraits that re-actualizes the traditional Korean ‘Hanbok’. Which many Korean people are wearing during the National traditional festivities ‘Chuseok’. With these asthonising pictures with their poetic… Continue reading soft whispers


Perfect timing of these go-ginger-go-girls. That modern-vintage, clean touch of Emilie Vercruysse photography is just hitting all the right buttons for me. What a plus to capture a summerglow together with a crisp winter hominess. Picture by courtesy of Emilie Vercruysse.
