PREMIERE

Atelier NL presented glass melted from ‘wild’ sand

Following intensive research and experimentation, designers Nadine Sterk and Lonny van Ryswyck of Atelier NL developed a unique method that allowed them to melt local ‘wild’ sand, into unique, high quality objects of glass. During Designday, they will present their second edition ZandGlas made of the sand from Savelsbos in Maastricht. After the series of light green glass made of sand from the Zandmotor (The Hague), their latest location is the rusty coloured sand from soil near Maastricht. During our opening evening, Atelier NL offered the first ZandGlas to deputy Ger Koopmans of Limburg. Read more >>

Bats are an endangered species. The animals get a new home by placing a Batpole. This way, construction on the building can continue,’ says designer Robin van Hontem. We also talked to project manager Tima van der Linden about the developments of the Tapijn area. Read more >>
