Doubtful Design

In Antwerp yesterday - Doubtful Design - the secondhand design market.
a collection of seventies ceramics, mainly West German Pottery

chairs everywhere, in all colours, shapes and sizes

As a child I loved this logo of a cigarette brand, the billboards on the walls where so attractive. But the story of the Belgian model in the picture is a tragic one.

A Rietveld House. Many years ago I would not have resisted this as I was making doll's houses back then.

Some gorgeous things there! Looks like a fantastic place to go. Is it still on nowadays? We travel over to Germany a lot to buy West German Pottery so it'd be something I'd like to visit. Emma :)
