Audience welcome, come and ‘Get Lost Creatively’!

During the event at MONDiLAB, a live talk will take place on Sunday, October 30th from 2 p.m. between Irving Vorster (fashion designer of couture label IRVINX en video-podcast creator) and Irene van Ophoven. Audience is welcome at this special ‘Enroute’ edition! This talk can be watched afterwards via the YouTube channel of Irving’s inspiring conversation series of Creatief Verdwalen.

Get Set for Dutch Design Week, 22 – 30 October in Eindhoven!

In a cooperation with MONDiLAB I have developed a new series of statement pieces for modern interiors, with my own interpretation of the Bauhaus story; between applied art and design.

The physical experience and expressiveness of a space is even more important than before, not least because of the time we spend online every day and its influence on us. With my way of working, which again started with a manual process and screen printing, I balance the digital with the canvas of the ‘real’ actual world. Also in this series, I aim to give an interior and a special flair with my strong graphic style. The new collection on show at Dutch Design Week consists of framed velvet wall art, wool carpets and fancy cushions.

You are very much welcome to the wonderful MONDiLAB, the place where professional makers come for innovation in the textile crafts.

Let’s meet in Eindhoven!


Address MONDiLAB:

Steenoven 32, 5626 DK Eindhoven

Open: During the event 11 – 18 h (entrance free)


Here some impressions of the show

Dutch Design is key at Hotel Artemis in Amsterdam, it’s in the DNA of this hotel; d.&a (Design & ARTemis). It is so wonderful that they have asked me to enhance their lobby with my designs. For the temporary exhibition ZOOM IN, I used some works from my Connected Series and made other wall hangings especially for them, connecting the entrance hall with the restaurant area. This presentation shows very well what I can do in terms of hospitality design for other projects as well. Of course, the wall-hangings will be for sale afterwards.


Address Dutch Design Hotel Artemis:

John M. Keynesplein 2, 1066 EP Amsterdam

Open: 24/7

Another nice thing to mention is that I had the opportunity to speak about this project during an event organised by the Dutch Designers’ Association (BNO – Beroepsorganisatie Nederlandse Ontwerpers) about the use of colour in hospitality interiors.

I am very interested in designing in the most sustainable way possible. I have already worked with the beautiful Piñatex material and a while ago I attended a training course on circular material design by CIRCO – Creating Business through Circular Design. They help activate entrepreneurs and creative professionals to (re)design products, services and business models in order to subsequently conduct circular business. Now, I am very proud to be able to contribute to a CIRCO Track on Roadside Grass. As an external designer I’m committed to this training program and give shape to the circular ambitions of the various participants. Also interested in circular design? Then let me know!

I am very pleased to announce that I will be showing my work at the Masterly – Dutch Pavilion during the Salone del Mobile 2021.

The event will take place 5 – 10 September at Palazzo Francesco Turati in Milan.

Here some impressions of the show

For the first time I can present my designs in my ‘home port’ of Rotterdam. I am super happy that from now on my work is shown at Senso’s Concept Gallery. Senso designs innovative, seamless surfaces for floors and walls and my designs for wallpaper and tiles fit wonderful! You can go and see a number of works from my connected series there, including new framed wall art.


Address Concept Gallery:

Oostzeedijk 108, Rotterdam (@ De Achtertuin)

Open: Tuesday – Saturday 10 – 17 h

At GLUE Amsterdam I am teaming up with the label HOT – Home of Treasures. We are showing some great new designs for a modular and flexible wall system with acoustic properties, made of Piñatex (natural textiles made from pineapple leaf fibres), enriched with a repeatable geometric motif, designed by me. The design contrasts beautifully to this organic and sustainable material. The colourful panels can be combined in many different ways; as a single walldeco or combined together in a stunning large playfull piece of wall-art.



Address: Lange Houtstraat 15 B, The Hague



Here are some impressions of the show.

At the showroom for interior architecture and design of Bas van Pelt some of my new designs for feature walls are on display: wallpaper, textiles, roman shades, tiles and wall objects. You are most welcome to play with the different designs and see what it can do for your project. We are happy to discuss with you all the possibilities.
