New street pics


I can still see it
How it started
Me joyous
Smiling dialling in on you

In rapture
Beneath a willow tree
You dialling in on me

We entangled
Killing, killing time
In heaven
Absent all traces of hell

And at first light
It was the best farewell

zaterdag 30 maart 2013


The cold wind breezes and I’m still me
I remember something
Hoping that something remembers me

My head is full
But my heart feels shrunken
Romance feels mush
The garden sunken

You are nothing without a heart
The absence of love can tear a man apart

An image of you
Porcelain skin
Eyes of blue

Yet so pure
I walk on
In demure


As I am I am static
Background noise
With white noise somewhere in between

A binary wallflower
A code looking to be cracked
A soul yearning to be hacked

As I am I am axiomatic
With my binary coat I travel lightly
I drive along a waysideless highway
Smiling sardonically
While my soul’s expanding

Opening time
Tue–Sat 10:00–20:00
Sun 10:00–18:00

Hendrick’s Collection 
Inspired by one man’s dedication. Hendrick's Collection is a contemporary furniture range inspired by 17th century paintings of Hendrick Avercamp, an artist who devoted his life entirely to the portrayal of Dutch winter scenes. On display will be a selection of items from the collection.
Body Graffiti 
Exclusively launched at Milan! In partnership with Laser 3.14, the eponymous secretive graffiti artist from Amsterdam, we’re applying his renowned insightful, witty and often revealing narratives to jewelry. Each tag will be cast in silver, gold, or titanium, available either mounted on a symbolic drop of silver paint or hung on silver cord. Laser 3.14’s usual canvases are the transient hoardings around Amsterdam.
Il Treno
Il Treno 
A standalone piece, this daring item creates a dining experience reminiscent of the old secluded train compartments on the Orient Express. This modular unit is handcrafted in Ash or Oak wood and comes in two versions, one with storage for your fine china and one without.
Our escape to the country. A new architectural design that kicked up a storm online and was featured by Frame Magazine, DOMUS, Dezeen, designboom, inhabitat, and many other media. This house is a new architectural design delivering an ecologically friendly retreat from the modern world. Combining intelligent technology with elegant sophistication, this design creates a habitat that barely impacts its environment. With computer controlled shutters, intelligent self-sufficient heating systems, wood storage, solar tree and minimal footprint, the Isolée creates permanence, but with an engineered beauty all of its own.

Fizzy fussy images
Lingering in my mind
A parade of distortions
Mountains of rubble to climb
Quite soon they’ll start screaming in me
Feeling so guilty while being so innocent

There’s a concept of purpose in a universe devoid of purpose
A vast staggering motion moving, dying, living
Staggering distances
Tiny particles
Photons race through everything
And we are here
Playing with ourselves
Sardonically lamenting the images reflecting back

Fulminating, masturbating
On a collision course with boredom
While the universe glitters and gleams
