There’s something about Myrte There’s something about Myrte
November 2nd, 2010

Myrte de Zeeuw is actually an established fashion designer at a large international company based in the Netherlands, but like everyone, she needs to escape the hectic pace of her professional life: she finds solace in her little bird subjects. The idea to start drawing them came to her while on a business trip in New York (as you do). A Northern Flicker crossed her path. Entranced by this encounter, it triggered her to tell his story. This is the story of Myrte’s sweet love affair with birds.


Dampeners that will lift your spirits Dampeners that will lift your spirits

Fieldz is a new brand from Den Bosch (as we like to call it locally) – in full it’s ‘s-Hertogenbosch. I spoke to its founder, Marjan Veltkamp, who told me about her happy accident at finding a new way of uplifting and also calming people while keeping noise levels down. Her customers to date have been schools, physiotherapy clinics, offices and private clients. She also says she is astonished at how her idea has found a solid foothold already and threatens to burst completely out of control, and the future of her business is very promising. You can meet Marjan or see her acoustic work at Dutch Design Week in the Machinekamer on Strijp-S, in Eindhoven until 31 October.
