Life as an interior design blogger can be extremely tough. You’re invited to parties all over Europe, you get to meet fascinating people and you get to see all the latest designs first. The invitation I got a while ago to attend the opening party of the How We Work Exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum in Bois-Le-Duc proved to be no exception. Before I go on, let me clear up one thing. Den Bosch is a lovely town in the south of the Netherlands and has multiple names. The official Dutch name is ‘s-Hertogenbosch – and as I once learnt in high school, the official English name is Bois-Le-Duc. Très strangé! if you ask me but there you go.
Now let me lay it on the line. If you’re interested in Dutch Design, How We Work is Not. To. Be. Missed. This exhibition features the latest work by a stellar lineup that includes Scholten & Baijings, Chris Kabel, rEnS and many, many other Dutch Designers. The exhibition is curated by none other than Tatjana Quax of Studio Aandacht and all her work ain’t been in vain for nothin’ since the Stedelijk Museum was positively packed during the opening party. And let me tell you, taking pictures at a busy museum party is pretty hard – people block your view, they get in the way or they bump into you, like Anne-Marie Ross did (nice to see you again). Still, I managed to take some halfway decent pictures. And here they are!
