I found soem old scraps of felt from these old times and couldn’t resist making a pin cushion for my friend Rachel’s daughter. Reading blogs like Angry Chicken and Vlijtig I’m convinced that had I had daughters we’d spend the days knitting, crocheting and sewing. With boys we spend time staging car accidents.
We visited the Design school in Zurich, and it was pretty cool.
yeah, that’s right.
The Design museum is in the same building. Note to self: open a design museum in my University.
The Freitag shop. You know, bags and wallets made with old truck tarps. Very hipster. The building is as you can see, a series of containers stacked on top of each other. The view at the top is quite something, if you don’t mind the wobbly.
At the Museum Bellerive, on the lakeside, we saw an exhibition about perfumes.
Taking photos was not allowed, but I couldn’t resist and took a clandestine one of this wall of miniature perfume bottles.
Last week I went on a short trip to Winterthur and Zurich to visit a couple of exhibitions and do some reckless shopping (note to husband: just kidding). The Gewerbemuseum (trade and craft museum) in Winterthur is currently showing a very nice collection of glass objects, in perfect timing with my semester project.
Here are some of my faves:
How amazing are these carafes made of old bottles?
Ittala glasses. Make my heart skip a beat. I want them all.
This lamp is made of glass rocks and LEDs.
This lamp is one I could commit to.
These bowls are made of glass and their handles are made of climbing rope. I like the champagne bucket.
The color of these? Amazing.
Glass panes and objects made from them. I want the panes in my house instead of curtains.
If you happen to be in the area, it’s totally worth it.
