Hello S’well pals, it’s Sarah, S’wells founder reporting in from the amazing Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven. Being here for the design show has been like waking up as a kid on Christmas morning, and being in Disney world simultaneously. It’s that good. I have made wonderful new connections for S’well, found new design inspirations and sourced rare finds for our new S’well pop-up shop in Palm Beach, Florida this winter (more to come on that soon!).
In the meantime, I wanted to share a few pictures from one of my fav designers, Nacho Carbonell. (Maybe there is something about the name Nacho that grants such appeal, as some of you may know of my little crush on the talented polo player of the same first name!)
Anyhow, this Nacho is a Spanish born artist with his main studio in the Netherlands and is certainly someone we will see on the international art and design scene for decades to come. His organic forms are whimsical and full of texture and natural elements. I love the most the benches with the hidden cubbies, the modular desks, and pretty much everything with ladders leading every which way. I first learned of this artist at Rossana Orlandi’s magical gallery in Milan and was lucky enough to visit Nacho’s working studio in the Netherlands this week.
I will leave you with a few pictures. For more about Nacho Carbonell and his work, www.NachoCarbonell.com
Ciao for now, more to come on the #DDW soon, Sarah
