Five days of looking: Amsterdam

Design minds need feeding. So after the pre-Christmas rush at the studio, it’s been good to look out and look up on a trip to Amsterdam. It started with a desire to revisit the Rijksmuseum post refurb. But there was much else to see: pigments at Rembrandt’s house, a reminder of the playfulness of the Stedelijk, the Festival of Light installations along the canals, the ‘Book Palace’, Amsterdam’s enormous new city library, the remarkable Amsterdam School architecture and design at Het Schip and much else between. More photos on flickr. Drawings from the trip are on Instagram.
