The Cobra Museum of modern art in Amstelveen is organizing ‘Camping Cobra‘ on the 25th of May 2019. What is this, you ask of us. Well, it’s exactly what you think it is. A sleepover at the Museum. Hunderd people can bring their sleepingbags and matresses to spend the night. Bringing your own matresses isn’t very chique, we know, but this is a slumberparty for children of course. We all now a child doesn’t need comfort whilst sleeping (tsssss). Adults are also welcome but they have to be accompanied by a kid.
24H Amstelveen Festival
The Camping event is organized within the 24H Amstelveen festival. 24H Amstelveen is about the experience of more than 40 activities in Amstelveen in just 24 hours. We suppose that’s for people with very little time to spend, like tourists for example, but also for children obviously.
Anyways, everything ‘tongue in cheek’ aside; if you would like to sleep under famous paintings made by Karel Appel and friends make a reservation here. It costs €10,-.
PS We do hope that everybody reading this post knows what the Cobra Museum is. If not let us tell you. Cobra stands for Copenhagen (Co), Brussels (Br), Amsterdam (A), it is an expressionist art movement from the 20th century (1948-1951). the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen houses only work made by the artists whitin this group.
Just Like Hotel Modez, for which we, Mimi Berlin, designed a room The Playland Motel invited 12 prominent designers and artists to curate individual rooms in their own aesthetic. The Motel is situated in an restored 19th century building at Rockaway Beach in New York. Should be fun!! Playland: 97-20 Rockaway Beach Blvd, Rockaway Beach, 11693, New York.Room # 3, Perspective, designed by Simon Spurr (via playlandmotel)
Room # designed by Nektarios Ioannidis (via playlandmotel)
View The Exchange hotel in Amsterdam it’s design concept is similar to the Playland Motel……
