Lost & Found exhibition

EN

Today I went to Amsterdam to an exhibition & pop up store called: Lost & Found, an initiative by our Dutch railway company NS and artists and designers. The name says it all, an exhibition with lost and found objects! And fortunately most of these objects return to its rightful owner but some don’t.

The designers and artists have recycled the abandoned objects that are never been claimed into: bags, mittens, stationery and accessories! It’s pretty cool to see and all the profits go to Natuur en Millieu!

The entrance is free and open till 14th December!

Hoewel het koud is vandaag scheen ons zonnetje! Ik was vandaag in Amsterdam voor de expo en pop up store: ‘Lost & Found’ . Een initiatief door NS in samenwerking met kunstenaars en ontwerpers.

Deze creatieve mensen recyclen en geven een nieuw leven aan de verloren voorwerpen. Zo werden er tassen, handschoenen en accessoires gemaakt en uiteraard verkocht, want alle opbrengsten gaan naar Natuur en Milieu!

Deze expo is te zien tot en met 14 december met gratis toegang!
I'd love to have this in my future home someday c: 

Its free! c:

 What does this thing called? Anyone??

 One of the artists! 

 One of the prettiest lost and found objects was this violin in kids size. If this was mine I'd go mad if I lost it really. 

These mittens are made of recycled materials. 

I did not expect for this mini exhibition to have radio + tv crew coming over. Thank God they didn't asked me ha.

  17. beautiful stuff, thank you for sharing. i love the chair! it looks like a luggage with four legs which makes it adorable and unique ;)
    i wish i live in a country where walking around the city is safe so i can roam around when i need some fresh air. sigh..
    exhibitions in here tend to happen inside shopping malls and it doesn't bring out the same atmosphere, i guess... then again, when i wanted to see the exhibitions, my parents always pull me away because they're one of those people who think "art is just blah"
