We, at Mimi Berlin, have been away from our blog for over a year. So we do feel the need to update you, our readers, on what we’ve been up to all this time. Well, amongst other things, and in a nutshell; we created lamps. Below some quick snapshots.
The lamps made by Mimi Berlin
All these lamps are constructed mainly with recycled plastic. Or as we like to say; discarded plastic all sorts; early plastics, newly produced plastic….from Tupperware to…..well, everything but the kitchen sink.
Wait, hold on, we created more in our year of absence

Sammelwut is a German term; literally translated into English as collectors rage. But it rather means the deep urge to collect stuff. As you know we, at Mimi Berlin, are almost professional collector’s, also our objects are made of what we collect. Rob Geertman, the owner of the Sammelwut store chose a number of Faces, made by us, to showcase at Sammelwut. Sammelwut we love that word and we are very pleased that our work can be found at this art and interior store in Nijmegen.
“Sammelwut is the store in Nijmegen for lovers of contemporary art and a stylish and modern interior. In our store you will find a varying range of artworks combined with an inspiring collection of home accessories.”
Nijmegen is a lovely city in The Netherlands, set in the ‘river landscape between the Rhine, Meuse and Waal rivers “Nijmegen is also the oldest city in The Netherlands so a city-stroll will bring you to castles and “archaeological finds dating back to the Romans and other times” The Sammelwut shop is situated in the city-center in the Lange Hezelstraat 89, 6511 CE Nijmegen
Reflection in Time is an art project initiated by Nannet van der Kleijn. Ms van der Kleijn sent about 500 pieces of blank linen canvasses in A4 size to friends, family and acquaintances. She asked if they wanted to do ‘something’ with that piece of cloth. (The previous sentence is us, at Mimi Berlin, putting the more elaborate vision of Nannet van der Kleijn in a tiny nutshell ofcourse!)
