Just in, a complete three-part set of the BZ28/29 by Gerd Lange for ‘t Spectrum, 1970. This typical Space Age design by ‘t Spectrum in the 1970s is in good vintage condition. One rarely finds these pieces in such condition with the original moulded plastic armrests. This set has its original white velvet upholstery, to keep is as original as possible. The curved and bulky shapes specify the space age era.
75 quality dealers from all over Europe, including Cocoon Collectables, will return to Amsterdam on April 6 + 7, bringing their finest vintage design pieces from the 1930s – 1980s. A diversity of interior objects will be offered for sale to both professionals and broad public: from well-known classics to anonymous designs, with Eames next to Mies van der Rohe and from Italian-chic to raw industrials.
Design Icons Amsterdam takes place annually in the beautiful venue of De Kromhouthal. This former marine engine factory has been restored into a charming event location. Situated on the North shore of ’t IJ, there is a beautiful view to the city center. The industrial atmosphere of De Kromhouthal is the ideal setting to showcase the design icons of the past century.
Heleen Hülsmann is de elegante motor achter de gelijknamige Salon Heleen Hülsmann, een high end vintage winkel in Amsterdam-Zuid. Altijd al modegek, ontdekte ze een gat in de markt: waarom was er geen adres met zorgvuldig geselecteerde tweedehands designerkleding? Ze begon met een kledingrek op de Lairessestraat in Amsterdam en raakte al snel bekend. Inmiddels is ze een begrip en is ze verhuist naar de Willemsparkweg 166 in Amsterdam.
