Hidden identity

Hidden identity
Being anonymous,
hidden and disguished,
providing a feeling of protection and safety.


Do you want to go undercover?

Intimate feelings

Intimate feelings
Showing its true personality,
a sense of intimacy.
Stripped down to its personality,

I go walking.
I look at plants and pick up leaves, pebbles and sticks.
I give my time to materials, colours and form.

My work becomes my diary.

Gradient





When visiting Elle Inside Design one of the beautiful and inspiring rooms was a project GRADIENT by Mieke Cuppen and Linde Freya Tangelder. Gradient is a project and a series of photos where the color gradations in food were researched, elevating food into a showpiece. The amount of color gradations, the story between food and glassware and how these two increase each other were the things they noticed during this project.

The series of photos became the inspiration for a glass object. An object which can be uses in two ways. Mieke and Linde have worked on a book showing all the pictures. They have some plans with the book and of course I will keep you informed when I know more.

Want to see more work of Mieke Cuppen, please visit her website here.

Elle Inside Design part II: IJM studio

6.10.10



One of the 4 design spots during Elle Inside Design was the location of IJM studio by Frank Visser.
IJM studio works on many productions for the Dutch interior magazine Elle Wonen. At the IJM studio there was much to explore, unique decors in the IJM style with many beautiful matte colors and unusual color combinations. A kind of a fairy tale world where everything can be seen.

I also made a photo report for Bloesem blog from this design spot which you can see here.
Please also visit the website of IJM studio where you can see so many beautiful things to inspire...

Elle Inside Design part I




About 1,5 week ago the Elle Inside Design event took place at the Loyd Hotel in Amsterdam and at 4 design spots in the city. It is always a delight to visit this event where designers, shops and brands show their product in one of the hotel rooms in a special way.

I made a full photo report for Bloesem blog which you can read and see here. Thanks Irene from Bloesem blog for giving me the opportunity of doing this. Also Nu interieurontwerp did a photo report for Bloesem which you can see and read here. Later on part II of this event where I have visited IJM studio...
