alphabet shelves

the geometric Alphabet Shelves are custom-made by Chiaozza.
They are ideal for displaying collections of small objects and curios, yet are beautiful on their own as art objects themselves.

The shelves are inspired by a Danish folk design from the island of Amager, near Copenhagen, and are cut with traditional woodworking saws. Shapes include variations on triangles, parallelograms, circles, and letter forms.

Great idea, beautifully designed!
Quite expensive though, but hey...made with love!

mokkakkapot

Last Friday, we visited mokkakapot, a new place (culturebarbar // gallery // bazar) in Antwerp, where you can eat lunch, drink a coffee (made with a delicioso Faema) or a beer
Very nice place, really worth a visit (or two or three...)

PS. the wooden floor, made entirely out of wooden toy blocks is simply magnificent!

home

During his March 2013 visit to Minneapolis at the Walker Art Center, Amsterdam-based artist/designer Job Wouters – better known as Letman – created a hand-painted mural in the Walker lobby. Inspired by his own history in graffiti, as well as influences from Asian calligraphy to cowboy lettering, Wouters spelled out the word ‘HOME’ in pink, brown, and green.

check this film of his painting action!

sunny sunday


 perfect for a water-balloon-fight!







studiomie

if you plan a trip to ghent and need a fantastic place to stay, go to studiomie.
studiomie is a b&b, for two persons and made out of two containers. 
that seems small, but inside, you get everything you need, very personal and fresh. 
the bed (in the top container) is huge and gives you a great view over the rooftops.
maybe it is better to book studiomie and plan a trip to ghent around it...
(thanks to r&f for the birthday-gift!)
