after 2 months in london I am back (not really back but just here again.. for a while, I guess ). with a little stopover at my parents in germany, I am on my to the dutch design week in eindhoven. Its the seventh edition of the largest design event in the netherlands. around 1500 designers from home and abroad will show their work in more than 50 locations all over the city. I will attend maarten baas party at the smalle haven tomorrow evening. so, see you there.. or give me a call and meet me somewhere else. lalala, matylda

yeah, thesedays it’s very trendy to do a pop-up shop (temporay shops, showrooms – at that time people use to call it guerilla store but now it’s the pop-up shop) or to build a pavilion (like frank o.gehry did for the serpentine gallery). this is another in south bank in london.
yesterday evening I attended “an evening spent understanding how to add value to your innovation and design process” at the soho gallery, west london.
