Sonneveld House by architects Brinkman en Van der Vlugt
100 years of Bauhaus
Linoleum was an integral part of Functionalist architecture. It is hygienic, easy to maintain and lies flat and even, without lumps or bumps. At the beginning of the 1930s linoleum was quite expensive. It was used in hospitals but not in private houses. It was therefore a great luxury to have it in the guest bedroom, the serving room and in both servants’ rooms. Dark-brown linoleum was also planned for the parents’ bedroom but eventually a warmer and more luxurious woollen carpet was chosen. The linoleum was supplied by Metz & Co in Amsterdam and was made in Krommenie.
Few months ago when i was strollin around the art store, i found that they’re selling slicing woods, ready to paint. But the price was hella expensive (was around 50RM each i mean omg!). So i stayed back and just kept the ideas in mind.
Then a friend of mine offer me to collaborate. Of course that ideas of drawing on the slice of wood come back to life like a zombieeee. So he helped me to made some and sending it right away to me with a super good price.
Well, that was one of the little dream i had. And finally it comes true. And now my hand drawing standing beautifully beside my bed everydayyy.
