Yesterday I went to the annual 'Woonbeurs'. A mainstream and big happening in Amsterdam. Next to the usual kitchen and swimmingpool salesmen, wearing grey suits, there were some treasures as well:
This was their stand on the show. Great fabric design, stationery and other beautiful things. I bought their new wrapping paper.
A company called Weltevree showed some great stoves. My favorite, the Stonestove by Dick van Hoff, was there as well! Made of concrete parts and a timeless beauty, if you ask me. Worth to save money for!

Unfortunately I didn't see any demonstration. But this light object called 'the rithm of light' changes it's colour and intensity by pulling the 'lampshade' down. The density of the weaving changes and makes the light dimm or change the colour a bit. At least, that is what I understood reading Susanne's website. Apart from this great technical story I think this design has something heavenly.
