Fold your bowl

A recent article about my home on Apartment Therapy featured a picture of our fruit bowl. It’s a plastic/polymer bowl that we bought as a flat sheet. The edges are cut out to resemble a Dutch skyline with windmills, canal houses and draw bridges. Once put on the table the shadow cast by either sun or lamp shows the skyline on your table.

Many people asked me where I got it and who designed it. Margriet Foolen was responsible for the design, and I bought this bowl at Thinking of Holland. A dutch design shop I posted about earlier. It is available through their webshop and only costs € 22,-.

Thinking of Holland….

The first line, well, translated that is, of a Dutch poem. But also the name of Dutch Souvenir-Cum-Design shop Thinking of Holland. I love their collection and first got to hear about them looking for the Chick-a-dee smoke detector I wrote about a few months back. They sell Dutch design with a souvenir twist. Designs by big names like Droog Design, Porceleyne Flesch, Royal Goedewagen, Moooi, Studio Job to name a few. And the good news is, they now opened up shop online too!

Warning:  this site will likely make you spend too much!
