This week is Dutch Design Week in the Netherlands. There are many exhibitions all over town. Here are some peeks from exhibitions I visited, including the ‘Designhuis’, ‘Dutch Design Awards’ and the ‘Design Academy’. I love that during this week the whole town seems to overflow with fresh ideas and creative spirit.

The most adorable pocket boxes by Kim Welling.

 These vases by Anna Glansén reminded me of the rose in ‘Beauty and the Beast’.

I loved the water colored animals by Rop van Mierlo. They are simple and playful.

A laser cutter using the sun as source in the desert by Markus Kayser. Isn’t that amazing?

These glasses were cut by the machine…

How about this foxy sweater? (I couldn’t find the designer anymore and forgot to take a note or something.. tell me if you know!)

These relief tiles designed by Jeriël Bobbe make different sounds when you roll over them with your suitcase, creating a ‘suitcase symphony’.

A table that you can embroider by Anne Vader.

I thought this book by Philip Lüschen was hilarious. Note that the hole in the book becomes two peeking holes to look through when you open it.

It’s full of little funny illustrations.

Vinyl records by Ruben Thier.
