For the love of design: Pinned Up by Marcel Wanders

I finally found some time to visit the exhibition of Marcel Wanders at Stedelijk Amsterdam. I planned a trip before, but it was driven by a lot of enthusiasm in the openings weekend… which was a very very long row of people. I’m glad I visited ‘Pinned Up’ near the end of the expo, because it was really quite (maybe because of the lovely weather). Anyways, I loved the expo! I’ve always been a fan of Wanders’ magical designs. The exhibition space is well decorated with a black and white theme. My favorite theme – no doubt – was the dark with its extraordinary and daring designs.

If you’re in for a trip and you like wandering through a magically designed world, guided by inspiring quotes and decorated with eye-catchers for home and living, then you should definitely visit Pinned Up !

Pinned Up will end on the 15th of June 2014, so be quick if you love design!


750 square meters bold design apartment

This 750m2 apartment in Sao Paulo by Studio Guilherme Torres is filled with bold objects, designer furniture and accessories, and books of great artists like Jeff Koons, Keith Haring and Taschen. Torres’ work is full of outspoken objects and designer chairs, lightning and wall objects. Daring is what I love and although I feature lots of minimal apartments, I adore the bold! The 750 square meters apartment offers space for bold and beautiful furniture and still looks clean. Dare to come in this bold design apartment and get inspired by great masters, contrasts and decoration.

The VM house done by Studio GT is like a monochrome museum full of eye catchers. Torres even used lightning by our great Dutch Designer Marcel Wanders (MOOOI). The Horse lamp in the dining room and the Rabbit lamp in the bathroom. Everywhere in the apartment you find a touch of radiant orchid, Pantone’s color of the year. Only one room is fully colored. Find out for yourself!

Bell Lamp by Marcel Wanders

Bell Lamp
Design by Marcel Wanders for Dutch label MOOOI.

The bell represents a very early and essential form of communication, generating a welcoming ring that brings people together for festivities and congregations. Seen at the MOOOI Gallery during my visit in Amsterdam. Loved the huge version by entering the showroom.

Available in different colours and two dimensions. This transparent & gold edition is my personal favorite.

Happy 27th birthday

Today is the 20th of November, which means that 27 years ago I entered this crazy world! A newborn red head, ready to create pretty things and love design. Around the age of 6 I build my first home, made of Lego. I’ve always been a fan of those creative little cubes which I could build beautiful houses, man caves and super hero headquarters with. Yep, I was (and still am) that boy – now ‘man’ – with big dreams and lots of imagination. Creativity has always been my energy. Whether it was drawing, painting, creating puppets for my own little Muppet Show or Lego – a creative mind was the fuel to get it all done. Some years later the creative ideas started to get by night. I even redecorated my bedroom a couple of times at night – luckily my parents got used to it and as if today I surprise my friends with a new interior once in a while. Creating LABEL1114 is one of those big dreams which is now for real. Although I’m still searching for that one thing that is really my – LABEL1114 – personal style. I guess it’s all about developing. Can’t wait for LABEL1114 to turn 1 🙂 But for now, it’s about friends, family, cake… O and some of my favorite products by designers I blogged about earlier. Enjoy!

Once I grow up I really want these products and home elements…

Enjoy my personal favorite products which (still) are on my wish list.

– Oblique by Marcel Wanders for MOOOI
This magazine stand would help me organize my magazines and expose them as a piece of art.


– Construction Lamp by Joost van Bleiswijk for MOOOI – 
I spotted this floor lamp last weekend at the gallery of MOOOI. Love this architectural approach !
And still need a new lamp in the corner of my living room.


– Table Bella by HAY –
Simple yet so lovely and pure. Bella is a beautiful addition to my new ‘coffee table’ composition.


– Cushion and Shakespeare bust – 
Imperfection is beautiful, these two home decoration pieces would fit my little rebellious living room perfectly.
Also fancy and rough for my new bedroom idea. Thanks for this awesome home decoration, Jimmie Martin!


– Rabbit lamp by Marcel Wanders for MOOOI
This lamp is on top of my wish list. The fact that my last name has something to do with a rabbit / hare, makes it even more perfect to add to my home.



When I grow up I wanna have a high ceiling to create more space. I loved this living room I spotted on Pinterest!


Even though this is quite expensive, the pattern of this floor has been on my wish list ever since I bought my home. Maybe next year 🙂


Next year I hope to surprise you with a new list 😉

Amsterdam, Hotspots

Interior design in Amsterdam

Yesterday I visited Amsterdam with a good friend. We both have the same taste when it comes to interior, design and lifestyle. So we had to visit the HAY store, I had planned months ago. Following the route we both liked we visited HAY and MOOOI particular and some small shops on Haarlemmerstraat and Westerstraat.

Proost op het weekend!

Het weekend staat voor de deur en omdat LABEL1114 graag inspireert hierbij een mooie aftrap. Een innovatief concept en kindje van choreografe Nanine Linning en product designer Marcel Wanders: de Happy Hour Chandelier.


Het concept wordt omschreven als ‘legendarisch en spectaculair’ en dat is de door Wanders ontworpen Happy Hour Chandelier ook. Een traktatie voor je netvlies en entertainment voor op fashion shows, rode loper, evenementen en trouwerijen. De stijl van de ‘dancing angels’ kan je aanpassen aan de stijl van je evenement of feest. Een geschenk van boven. De chandelier is wit en de lampenkappen van binnen goud, maar ook deze zijn aan te passen naar keuze voor je branding. Een spannende en inspirerende combinatie van entertainment en product design!

Mocht LABEL1114 ooit een winkel openen dan staat de Happy Hour Chandelier voor de opening bovenaan de wensenlijst!
Proost en geniet van je weekend!

Een moooi begin…

Mijn grote passie voor interieur heeft eindelijk een vorm gekregen in een blog. En uitgerekend in week 11, 14 maart! Via LABEL1114 worden binnenkijkers gedeeld, interviews met jonge designers, innovatieve designs op interieurgebied, hotspots met een traktatie voor je netvlies en interieur trends. LABEL1114 is een interieur blog met een persoonlijk tintje. Zo gun ik je ook een kijkje in mijn eigen appartement en bij vrienden.


Ik trap het blog ‘mooi’ af met een ode aan het Nederlandse en inmiddels internationale label MOOOI. Het door Marcel Wanders en Casper Vissers opgerichte label bestaat uit een collectie die zich omschrijft als exclusief, uitdagend, speels en volmaakt. Een spannende combinatie die ik inspirerend vind en graag met je deel. Naast designs van niemand minder dan Marcel Wanders zelf, siert het label ook bekende designers zoals Studio Job, Nika Zupanc, Front, Bertjan Pot en Jaime Hayon, waar LABEL1114 je later mee verrast.


En om nog beter te beginnen, start het blog officieel met het eerste interview! LABEL1114 interviewde de tweelingzusjes van LileSadi. In het interview vertellen zij over hun inspiratiebron, collectie, eigen interieur en veel meer.

Geniet van de bijzondere designs en begin deze dag geïnspireerd!
