Colouring design

Nicolette & Jelena hebben een workshop ontwikkeld waarin het verhalende karakter van de ontwerpen en kleur samenkomen. In de workshop zal Nicolette een overzicht geven van haar ontwerpen vanaf de start in 1992 tot nu. Daarin is haar ontwikkeling te zien in haar werk en de kleurtoepassing. 
Jelena zal een presentatie geven over de kleurenfilosofie Colours of Life. Een benadering van kleur waarin de mens centraal staat. Natuurlijk word je tijdens de workshop zelf aan het werk gezet met kleur en beeld.
Jelena Brillenburg Wurth is Keurmerk gecertificeerd interieurprofessional en werkt al jaren als kleurspecialist voor zowel Histor als Sigma. Daarnaast richt zij modelwoningen in voor een groot projectontwikkelaar, geeft ze les en maakt interieurontwerpen voor zowel particulieren als MKB.
De workshop zal plaatsvinden op vrijdag 15 juni en op vrijdag 22 juni van 10.00 tot 13.00 uur in het atelier van Brunklaus aan de Frans Zieglerstraat 8 in Amsterdam. Vanaf 9.45 uur staat de koffie klaar.

De workshop kost €195,-. Laat je inspireren en meld je aan bij Jelena. Geef daarbij aan welke datum je voorkeur heeft. Wij willen de workshop intiem en informeel houden en hebben daarom plaats voor 8 personen per keer.

A little bit about the new collection...

Designers love to employ beautiful fabrics to combine function and aesthetics in whimsical play. The Sognsvann lamp (Left) follows this creed by evoking a memory the designer had along Norway's Lake Sognsvann. The fabric, what at first glance might appear to be an abstract bleed, is a scene of trees reflected in still water. Passersby provoke the glistening silk to lightly sway, creating an ebb and flow in the depicted waters. The light bulb that hangs behind the silk curtain could be mistaken for the moon as the viewer is slowly hypnotized by the lamp’s layered nuance. The Sognsvann lamp, made of Scandinavian Oakwood inspires the senses with its poetic efficacy and exceeds the boundaries of a fabric’s functional uses.  Right (Gold Pendant Lamp)            

 This year Brunklaus Amsterdam was true to form, creating new textiles and lamps that engage their audience with hidden meaning. For the textile collection, Brunklaus chose to tell a family story, of sorts, by reinventing forgotten family relics, woven and needlepoint craft from 1890 to the present. The textiles, trompe l’oeil collages of old knit work, tell a story of time and endurance. Their profound color combinations attract the eye and create moments that draw the viewer into a history they have yet to learn.

Stockholm Furniture Fair 2012

It's the third day of the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2012. New pillows, lamps and more are on display at our booth this year.  The Stockholm Furniture Fair breeds big ideas among creative people and plenty of positive energy. Even on the first day, after our stand was painted in a deep-blue green, it looked like we entered a fairy tale. We realized the Brunklaus world in pop-up form!

Above: Sognsvann and Abstract Gold Pendant lamp 
(Handmade, oak and printed silk)

The colors of the new Sognsvann pendant lamps are bold and sultry against the background walls. Every movement  in the air provokes the silk to move slightly, like ripples on the surface of the Norwegian Lake Sognsvann (the source of inspiration for the new lamp).

As architects, press and stylist came from  Elle, Bobedre, and the Swedish design magazine Villabladet Sydväst, we had the feeling we were losing them to another world in the soft and alluring glow of the pendant lamps.

Stockholm Furniture Fair 2012

It's less than two weeks before this year's Stockholm Furniture Fair, February 7-11th.
Excitement is in the air at our Amsterdam studio as we prepare our new collection for its debut in Sweden.  

Nicolette Brunklaus, our C.E.O. and chief designer, was inspired to create much of the work on a trip to Scandinavia, so it seems fitting that inspiration and inspired should meet again to introduce the collection.
Pictured here is a preview of the new Brunklaus textiles featuring uncommonly beautiful combinations of vintage colors, trompe l ‘oeil designs and various modern structures. 
Let us know what you think online or in person at the fair Hall A Stand A20:11
