Mimi Berlin Blogger Team has been split up into two bloggers. One is Mimi Berlin as you know her and the other one is Mimi Beijing. You can follow her stories at the SALON/ blog until the 5th of October 2013. At night Mimi Beijing is visiting several ‘design vernissages’ at the Beijing Design Week (BJDW). Below she just left her tag (big time) at the opening party of the Amsterdam Guest City of BJDW which was held the 28th of September in “The Tank” an abandoned gastank situated in a former industrial area. On show was an introduction to Dutch designers and architects.
