A big hooray for Daan and Maya from the showUP organisation: they combine professionalism with thinking out-of-the-box. Next to a real professional trade show, ShowUP is a center of inspration and co-creation.
ShowUP loves to see people connect! This year there will be a wonderful embroidery 'machine', (see above) by designer Floor Nijdeken. It is called Crossover Collective. Visitors can sit down, stich and co-create an XXL piece of embroidery together with other people. I think this is awesome!
So, to all you people in the home-gift-design-interior business (retailers, bloggers, designers or students): come to the Kromhouthal in Amsterdam next week (sunday 02-02 and monday 03-02). Entrance is free after registration on the website.
AND WHAT ABOUT MY NEW DESIGNS?
At this very moment I can not tell you if I will manage to show you samples of my future collection of ceramics or tea towels next week on ShowUP. If the samples come in, it will be at the very last minute (the beakers will still be hot the ink still wet, I am afraid) and I will have to decide on the spot whether the collection is good enough (price/quality/production) to be presented on the market.
To be honest, I am not sleeping very well these last days...it is too exciting.
