PRESS TRIP VITRA – RELAUNCH FIBERGLAS CHAIR

I have had  a profound love for any Eames design for as long as I can remember. That explains how my  Eames Lounge Chair , the first piece of design furniture I bought for myself, always takes up the best place in our living room. After quite some years of also happily using Vitra products  in our styling, we were invited to come to the source: The Vitra Campus so in Weil am Rhein, Switzerland.

The Vitra Campus is simultaneously a fully operational production site and a field of experimentation for architecture and design. For design and architecture enthusiast like me, it is a place where you can drool all day. The architecture of every single building and sculpture is out of this world, making it one of the most creative and inspirational places I have ever seen.

It is a special time to visit this unique place as is reintroducing the Eames chair in it’s original material of Fibre glass. A truly unique design that has resisted going out of style. Fashion is quick, styles change yet a with good design you can grasp a moment and keep it for ever. It becomes timeless.
The fibre glass gives this piece the perfect touch of vintage. The irregular surface and functional form makes this chair charming. It is a piece with real character and one of my old time favorite pieces. It’s been launched in 6 original colors of which the elephant grey is on my wishlist.

Another highlight in a long range of them was the Furniture Archive. A space that is normally closed for the public yet was now open for the launch with Vitra Chairman Rolf Fehlbaum. To see so many valuable, treasured and relevant design in one room is a dream come true for us after almost five years of Live Loud Girl.

This is officially Design Heaven…

MEETING CREATIVES – @YVETTEVANEIJNDHOVEN

Whilst our installations are a bit on the back burner due to the summer holiday, our creativity is on full speed.
The best thing about having a break from our very fun yet intense styling jobs is that there is more time for visiting stores abroad, sucking up every little bit of inspiration we come across and meeting other creatives.

PARIS IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA

We had a very good excuse to visit Paris this month. Maison & Objet had been on our wish list for some years and this time we made sure we would not miss it. A perfect reason to visit suppliers that we have been working with for a long time, find newbies to possibly collaborate with. More on our very favorites will soon be up on the blog.
This trip also gave us the possibility to visit influential Parisian places, inspirational stores and gastronomic restaurants.  We re-visited some of the top tips from our Paris Escape list and also discovered some new gems.
