Dry in Style

Jan Sluijters was a Dutch painter and draftsman. Sluijters painted in all styles, but always figuratively. He painted numerous prominent compatriots on commission and became a society painter. Sluijters had a reputation as a pioneer of Dutch modernism and was a source of inspiration for Piet Mondriaan and the later Cobra movement, among others. He painted quite realistically, but always with his characteristic bright use of colour. This tea towel has his work ‘Vase with Peonies’, from 1912.

Lace in the Kitchen

The wedding portraits of Marten Soolmans and Oopjen Coppit are the largest in size by the Dutch painter Rembrandt van Rijn and can be seen in the Rijksmuseum. Designer Sander Luske was inspired by the rich lace that Marten & Oopjen wear on the paintings. The pattern of this beautiful lace can be found on this porcelain espresso and coffee cup. What also makes these cups special is that they is handmade by people with a special distance from the labor market within the Design X Craft project.
