Meesterlijk the event for design, applied arts and food
Meesterlijk Design & crafts in Amsterdam
Meesterlijk presents each year in November, with great enthusiasm a tasteful and inspiring event for lovers of fashion, design and culinary delights. at a dynamic venue in Amsterdam.
In the past, during the time of the Guilds, the Master title offered the consumer assurance. Now Meesterlijk does the same for their public. For three days the Westergasfabriek transformed for Meesterlijk into an ‘City of Design’. A bustling mini-city where more then 100 self-producing designers, fashion designers, food artists and craftsmen share their passion for design and craft with their audience.
Designers and craftsman who are capable of elevating every day objects, furniture and accessories with timeless sophistication. A tailor made object has lasting immaterial value. And as you might noticed, an increasing number of designers are using the contemporary preference and interest of the audience for authenticity, craft and originality…this is the new luxury.
In a cozy and relaxing setting. Meesterlijk gives you the opportunity to introduce you self to the most fully dedicated state of beautiful, authentic and high quality products. You will find established names alongside young talent.
And the food, Glorious food, I might say. Topchef Buanchi perspective on food is mastery. Also Mr. Tacq contributes to the taste and smell senses-watering flavors and aromas. Something I couldn’t resist.
Shopping at a place that breathes creativity was never so much fun. Buy directly from the maker, but hear the story behind the design and how it’s made as well. Here are the eye-catchers I gaze on…..and my personal favourites I had to have.
And the new loves: yellow necklace “Piece by Piece” designed by Iris Nijenhuis. And the with ants embroidered dishcloth from Snijders & Co, best know for their hand painted wallpapers.
