Berlage Totaal

The best place to be, on a rainy afternoon, is the Gemeentemuseum in Den Haag (in my top 10 favourite buildings). This weekend was the last chance to visit the Berlage exhibition. Besides his architectural work on this museum, the exhibition pays attention to his designs for wallpaper, chairs, bookcover, crockery and complete interiors.

Gerd Arntz memory app

I received a newsletter with the announcement of the: Gerd Arntz memory app. It contains a selection of 250 from the more than 4000 pictograms Gerd Arntz drew between 1928  and 1965, scanned from the collection of the Gemeentemuseum The Hague. It is initiated and realised by Ontwerpwerk, The Hague, the Netherlands.  We do our utmost to make Gerd Arntz's work visible for a large public. It is part of our cultural heritage and we believe his work is of great importance for the world of contemporary visual communication. Check out the website: 
1 of the pictograms is also used in the Caballero Fabriek.
