tote bag, flip & tumble

By collaboration

New collaboration with flip & tumble from Berkeley, California. A woman owned business producing eco-friendly foldable tote bags. The bags are made of the same light, but tough material as parachutes and hold over 250 times their weight! Find the ‘Pear Blossom’ bag here.

A new addition to my collaboration with concept store Kitchener from Zurich.

“Our choices are not determined by the scene or by current trends; instead, we concentrate on making sure that our customers enjoy shopping with us. We don’t want to be hip. We want to be independent, personal, and provocative.”
Excerpt from their inspiring brand philosophy (and they are focussed on sustainability too :).

Building has started! 

By building update

Seven years ago Eelco (jade architecten) and I had the crazy idea of building our own home & office on this plot in the city of Rotterdam. After lots of bumps in the road we are really happy to have finally started.

It will become a super energy efficient building (‘passive house standard’). We are building as sustainable as possible with CLT (cross laminated timber) walls and floors and choosing bio-based and renewable building materials were possible like the insulation made of woodfibre.
More info about the project via, more images here.

rugs, nomia

By collaboration

Custom-made botanical illustrations for nomia rugs. They created two different style rugs, one bold coloured one which you can see above and one in soft tones. Both rugs are available in two sizes and as I understand the rugs are made by Wilton machine, which is one of the oldest weaving styles….

Future home & studio

By garden design

Our future home and workspace is finally taking shape! It will become a so called ‘Passive house’ and with every building choice we aim for the most sustainable solution. A building based on the principles and ambitions that also form the basis for the architecture of JADE architecten and my landscape and garden designs . With this building we show that it is possible to build very energy-efficient, biobased, nature-inclusive and adaptable in the middle of the city. This building can be the start of a healthy city full of passive and affordable buildings!
Project by: Eelco Dekker / jadearchitecten x Jessica Nielsen.

I will share the final roofgarden and patio design I made soon. If you would like to learn more about the architecture and see more images:
