Lifesaver / Waterworks in Brigitte Magazine

Earlier this summer we were very happy with Waterworks being featured in German magazine 'Brigitte'.
If the caption is 'Life-saver', what's not to love about a publication?!

Waterworks in Urban Jungle paradise / Wildernis Amsterdam

photograph by Wildernis Amsterdam
Urban gardening is happening and Wildernis in Amsterdam is the absolute hot-spot for all interior and urban plant lovers in our Dutch capital city.
Wildernis opened about a year ago, and it didn't take long for the store to rise to cult-status among bloggers and urban jungle fans.

It isn't difficult to see why: the interior is stylish and green as well as welcoming and pleasantly chaotic. An impressive collection of houseplants is showcased in a variety of pots ranging from basic terra cotta to contemporary design and quirky vintage finds. The many (many!) hanging plants create an instant urban jungle vibe with their downward cascading leaves.

All products sold at Wildernis have a link with greenery, albeit in the broadest sense of the word, which makes for a varied assortment and something on offer for anyone.

But Wildernis is more than just a store. Together with their team, owners Mila and Emma are on a mission to make Amsterdam greener.

Wildernis's goal is to showcase how easy it is to create more greenery in the city: in the (little) gardens, on your balcony, windowsill and inside your house. Collaborating with plantcare-professionals, Wildernis initiates projects, creates awareness and organizes workshops and courses to educate about plantcare.
Be sure to check out the workshop schedule on their website (-in Dutch- click).

A designers' dilemma: The story of Stuff

This short film was made in 2007, and is still very relevant today. Even more relevant, i would say, with our collective cellphone addicition (the Iphone came out somewhere around the time this movie was made)(feels ancient, right?).

What to do as a designer?
Should we stop creating stuff altogether or is it our responsibility to keep designing, but do it smarter and make a difference?
Is that even possible?
Can we make a difference by adding more stuff?

More about this and more video's can be found on
Feel free to share your thoughts.

I spotted this on Designboom a little while ago. Seems like a pretty great idea.
Read all about the design by French Design Studio ABF Lab in this article on Designboom.
