Okay, so we really needed to clean up Mimi Berlin’s HQ the other day. Being completely honest with you; that’s a dreadful task for us. We don’t like it, never have, never will, but we had to. By the time we were almost done, there was more than light at the end of our clean tunnel! As we opened up a a fresh new pack of trash bags by Brabantia there is was; surprise and laughter when we noticed the text ‘Ich Bin Ein Binliner’ printed on them! Just what we needed: some good old plain fun after a hard day of cleaning! Danke Schön Studio Aandacht for giving us domestic household pleasure!

The Magazine was launched during the opening of the WOTH Wonderful Store which was open during the Festival Designkwartier (tr; Design Quarters) in The Hague for three days only!

This image caught our eye the other day. The airplane turned out to be a Catalina ‘Landseaire’ Boat Yacht from the 1950s. When you click the link you’ll find out that airplanes were used and promoted in a very different way than today. Make sure to clickety click!

Not since the airship Hindenburg did passengers enjoy such a remarkable view of the world around them. Photo: Loomis Dean, LIFE Magazine
