During the Design Quarter The Hague festival Woth (Week only treasure hunt) store will open it’s doors. These are the doors of a private residence in the van Galenstraat 34 in The Hague. It’s not just any private residence, it is the home of the chief editor of the dutch interior magazines EH&I and MTC Living and her family. They live in a stunning old milk factory in the center of the city
Mary Hessing and her husband Toon Lauwen were inspired by stores like Merci, Corso Como 10 and Spazio Rossana Orlandi and created the WOTH Week Only Treasure Hunt. This department store for a week (16-21st of May) will be filled with the best design and art objects they could find. They created several spaces in their home and placed the products in color schemes in a lovely way. The courtyard of this home is transformed into a little restaurant, foo and drinks are served and made by Haagse Hapjes.
Next to the Mimi Berlin’s collaboration with the Gem Kingdom ” Ich Will Ein Fisch Im Wasser Sein” objects and our History of Circus Legends, carpets by Hella Jongerius for Danskina, furniture of Marcel Wanders, Front, Atelier van Lieshout, Osvaldo Borsani, Bertjan Pot, Jaime Hayon, Nika Zupanc, Piet Hein Eek, Studio Job and Maarten Baas.

Make sure when in The Hague to visit this pop-up store it’s certainly worth a visit!
The Frame Store Amsterdam at Felix & Foam in the Felix Meritis building at the Keizersgracht 324 (next to the Beren straat) opened it’s doors a month ago. It is the store of Frame Magazine in the form of a small department store which carries high-end interior and fashion design including a selection of books and art. Brands such as & Tradition, Vitra, Moooi, John Smedley Avelon and Youasme are sold at this store. The Felix & Foam initiative is worth a visit even if you hate shopping because you can also have lunch or coffee at the Foyer restaurant or visit one of the exhibitions or just visit the stunning Felix Meritis building.
Felix &Foam is a new, temporary (April 2014-Oct 2014) initiative of Foam in collaboration with Frame and restaurant Foyer, in the imposing Felix Meritis building in Amsterdam.
