WANDSCHAPPEN is the design studio, founded by Nicole Driessens & Ivo van den Baar in Rotterdam Charlois, The Netherlands. As designers they have developed products, based on visual art concepts, transformed into producible designs. Their love for textiles and crafts has lead to high quality handmade products, shown and sold worldwide. The collections of Felt Plants, Felt Vases and Felt Wall Objects are the most well known.
The idea of creating the plants arose from a concept about migration in the neighborhood where WANDSCHAPPEN lives and works. The area, called Charlois, is a notorious part of the city of Rotterdam, where people from all over the world (often refugees coming from war zones) try to start a new life. At the moment people start to decorate their new homes and buy plants the inhabitants of the area know they’ll have new neighbours.more information
