Nieuwerwets, Rosa Pomar and Ontwerpduo…inside design
A little while back Saskia Clarijs made a report for Bloesem about Inside Design Amsterdam 2010…and although this event already happened I still would like to show your some of the images she had made because they are so beautiful and inspiring. Saskia runs a Trend Analyzing agency in the Netherlands called Nieuwerwets. She helps companies to establish, develop and improve their marketing communications.
This post also gives me the opportunity to explain a bit about a misunderstanding between Ontwerpduo and Rosa Pomar. Tineke Beunders from Ontwerpduo found a what she thought vintage ribbon at a flea market one day in Amsterdam…she loved it so much that she decided to make a huge cross-stitch pattern out of it and use
it as reupholster for one their newly designed benches. When seeing this bench on Bloesem Rosa Pomar and some of her fans immediately recognized the pattern and sent me emails about possible 'copy-cat' issues…well I can assure you that this was not the case but a true misunderstanding. Both Rosa and Tineke are now very happy with the result…I suggested a possible future cooperation could be nice for all of us!
