The former dispatch warehouses located behind the main building were renovated by the architectural firm Kuehn Malvezzi and connected to the historical building via a passage.

Marcus Vergilius Eurysaces was a baker, his familiy tomb was built around 50-20 BC. It is one of the best preserved ‘freedman’ funerary monuments in Rome. (image via pocketrome.wordpress.com)
Apart from it’s modern look; the circles are believed to be grain-measuring vessels and the collums refer to a bakers’ kneading devices. The encription “Est hoc monimentvm marcei vergilei everysacis pistoris redemptoris apparet” which means “This is the monument of Marcus Vergilius Eurysaces, baker, contractor, public servant, obviously” seems written with a touch of humour, obviously.
This tomb is special because it was built by a freedmen. Freedmen were Roman citizens, former slaves set free by their masters. Nowadays one could call these selfmade persons “Nouveau Riche” because they wanted to show how wealthy they became, or leave a legacy because they weren’t noble men. Viewing history in this manner surely brings the Roman Empire closer to the years we live in nowadays. Interesting n’est pas?!

Qui Est Charlie
“Some time after the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, I was asked to participate in an exhibition that dealt with the subject of a divided society and its values.
“Critique Heals” is an anagram of “Qui Est Charlie”, which questions the meaning of “Je Suis Charlie”. ” –Michael van den Besselaar (via ello)
According to Moooi “Tegelaar’s designs shed a new light on undervalued materials and existing techniques, resulting in the industrial-inspired products” we only have to add that: these designs are elegant, fragile and they can be the (must-have of the decade) ‘focal point’ in your home if you want to, but they don’t have to.
Op vrijdag 7 september presenteren 14 vers afgestudeerde mode-ontwerpers, aan zeven verschillende Nederlandse mode- en kunstacademies, zich in één centrale catwalkshow: “Lichting” 2018. Tijdens Amsterdam Fashion Week is het de bedoeling dat de pers en mode professionals kennis kunnen maken met (voor zover ze dat al niet hadden gedaan in Juni tijdens de eindexamen-shows) het werk van deze groep ontwerpers, die geselecteerd zijn binnen de opleidingen.
De winnaar van Lichting 2018 ontvangt een geldprijs van €10.000,-, dit jaar beschikbaar gesteld door de Meester Koetsier Foundation. Voorheen waren de Nederlandse bedrijven G-Star en V&D zo aardig om dit project financiëel te steunen.
