Every time I visit a forest  I make sure I have my camera with me. As a hunter I explore the woods for the right light and the right colors.
This was taken last sunday.

 There is an exhibition on Ruud van Empel in the Groninger Museum right now.
I find him  one of the most interesting photographers at the moment

I also visited an opening at the Jewish Historical museum/Joods historisch museum in Amsterdam for the opening of a New York based photographer
Saul Leiter (1923).
Beautiful refections on everyday street life in New York.

Animated film to be released by the end of October

After a year of preparation I finally started filming a personal dream in which my products come to life.
At this moment my team is busy translating all ideas into a short animated film.
The film impression  is designed as a visual rhyming of my collection. I wanted to communicate the personal sphere in which I created my designs. It will take you from one world to another.
The Brunklaus 2- minute film will be released by the end of October.

Uscha van Banning

I would like to share with you the fantastic work of Uscha van Banning. She is an incredibly talented young designer .
She is working as an Interior designer but also does product design from  furniture to lighting. On her travels around the world she has developed a very interesting portfolio with photography.
At the moment she resides in  Australia.
I can't wait to see her new pictures from over there.
Please take a look at her website and get inspired.

Presenting Brunklaus Amsterdam to the Scandinavian world

Dear all,
I just returned from the Stockholm furniture fair, where we presented the Brunklaus collection.
I find this fair one of the most fun in Europe. It is a  good size and of very high quality.  The Swedish people are relaxed and still enjoy high quality products.
We had an enormous good response to the collection, even though the shady tree lighting has been around since 2002 the new colors matched very well with the deep printed textiles  against a white background and floor .
Here are some pictures!
I would like to thank all that came to visit us and see you next year.
