Beginning of this month we visited Platform 1.1, a platform for young creatives in the form of a pop-up exposition. This little gem was tucked away in the red light district of Amsterdam. We were glad we found it, because it always feels like a breath of fresh air when you come across beautiful products that are made with love, attention and an eye for detail.
Several creatives showcased their products, brom bags till notebooks till fine jewellery. A lot of nice things that caught our eye, so the pictures below are just a small impression of what all these young creatives have to offer!
Some labels that we want to hightlight:
Els & Nel – Both young independent professionals that reaches out to make your somewhat chaotic life more manageable with their on-point notebooks.
Nanini – An Amsterdam based goldsmith and designer who offers hand made jewelry in gold and silver (coming from the Aurelsa mine in Peru).
OFORM – A jewellery collection that finds a balance between geometric shapes, materials and colours.
Jolanda van Meringen – In her work she plays with layers and combines elements that create an interesting contrast. She approaches all of her work as a collage whether is is styling, graphic design or illustration.
Zand-erover – This label offers handmade tailor-made products, where all the materials used are chosen for their natural ability to visibly react when used.
Pikaplant – Offers a low-maintenance vertical garden. This product waters your plants with an automated and passive ebb-and-flow watering system.
Jeroen van Leur – Dutch product designer which designs and develops functional products with a sense of craftsmanship, quality and simplicity.
CLUSE watches – Exquisite ladies watches with a timeless design. Made with quality for an affordable price.
NICBAGS – Leather products that stands for tough and stylish design. Quality remnant leather is used in all products. Their motto: ‘Why waste? By using remnant leather all bags are assured to be unique!”
