Hollow land N 51 24.928 O 05 19.640

About one third of Holland (meaning “hollow land”) is below sea level. Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport is built in the middle of a former lake Flevoland, which is also reclaimed from sea, is on average 8 metres below sea level. The concept of “Hollow Land” highlights the fact that Holland is not only flat, but below sea level as well. These topographical depressions are as iconographic as wooden shoes and tulips. A mould is made of a hole in the ground, somewhere in the Netherlands. From the mould, a perfect replica of the hole is produced in ceramics.

Hairhats

Do you need a good alternative for wearing fur? Why not wear hats made of 100% human hair. The Hairhats are a statement about the fact that people shave and cut up almost every animal walking around with nice fur, but refuse to adorn human hair.

Bloom!

How come artificial plants don’t bloom?
OOOMS designed a series of artificial plants which don’t look real, but they really bloom! Just spray water on the surface of the Green Lettuce and within minutes the leaves will gently unfold. When you treat the Red Coral with some water it will release its arms and grow three times its size.
