Enlightened Design by Vosgesparis

 What do you think of this? Desiree of Vosgesparis is such a nice person!
I’ve met her in person a few times now, 
like on the day we visited Elle Festival in June.
And now she’s so kind to help me out with this re-post on my blog!
Since my father is ill I can’t spend the time on my blog that I normally do.
So this repost by Vosgesparis is truly a gift for me:

I can offer you, my loyal and new readers,

 a nice piece to read and get you inspired!
So thank you Desiree!! See you soon I hope :-)

 Enlightened Design | Elle festival 2014


It has been 2 months since I visited Dutch Elle festival, see my post about the Elle pavilion, and I still have tons of pictures of the exhibitions, installations and different design I saw during the two days I hopped from location to location. One of the exhibitions I visited was ‘ Enlightened design’ showcasing the work of thirteen design studio’s and an initiative of Connecting the Dots, supported by Doen, a foundation that supports initiatives for a green, creative and caring society.

I met the guys from Connecting the Dots last year in Milan, where we spent some time at Fuori Mercato, where me and my friend stayed during the Salone. It was also at the latest edition of the International Design week in Milan where Connecting the Dots noticed the attention to the ethical dimension as well as the social and environmental consequences of design products.

“It is notable that sustainable design is not necessarily packaged in a clever marketing story. Man and nature are simply, more than ever, at the center of things and have now become an integral part of the design” A small selection of pictures by Ilco Kemmere, more pictures can be found here.

I thought the work of Floris Wubben was pretty impressive. I loved the raw character of the vases and how they look like sculptural objects See more of the pressed ceramic at the website Pressed Ceramic

  Wat denk je hiervan? Desiree van Vosgesparis is zo leuk!
Ik heb haar een aantal keren persoonlijk ontmoet, bijvoorbeeld toen we Elle Festival in juni bezochten. En nu is ze zo aardig om mij te helpen met deze re-post op mijn blog!

Omdat mijn vader ziek is kan ik niet de tijd besteden aan mijn blog zoals ik normaal gesproken doe. 

Dus deze repost door Vosgesparis is echt een kadootje voor mij:

Ik kan jullie, mijn trouwe en nieuwe lezers, een mooie en inspirerende blogpost aanbieden!
Dus dank je Desiree !! Ik hoop tot gauw weer!:-)

  En aan mijn lezers:
