A wonderful wallflower
What does The Frozen Fountain have in store for this autumn? Well, there’s an interesting wallpaper and curtain collection by Elitis. And a new collection of lamps from Metalarte from Spain, featuring the work of Jaime Hayon, for example. Also, an extremely elegant table by designer Alfredo Häberli. In addition, we are showing Hanneke van Leeuwen’s graduation work (portraits) in our photo presentations, as well as the EA 121 armchair by Charles and Ray Eames reissued from Vitra. And that’s not all – but we will save the rest for later.

Elitis has surprised us with these marvellous materials. Wallpaper with powdered glass on vinyl, with a superimposed print. Rubber reliefs and a metal finish. Fluffed velvet curtains on a transparent background. Linens in bright colours or net curtains with delicate, open patterns.
Designer Jasper Morrison created this impressive sofa for Cappellini. Naturally available in various sizes. Here too is a selection of other sofas we currently have in our collection.

The EA 121 is a variant on the aluminium collection by designer duo Charles and Ray Eames. An armchair without arms, emphasising its slender form and elegant side profiles. The EA 121 was originally designed in 1958, and is now also available in a range of fabrics and colours developed by Vitra, together with designer Hella Jongerius.
Alfredo Häberli designed this elegant table for Swiss company Wogg. The table is available in many different sizes and in the materials oak, walnut and muirapiranga (satinwood).
Hanneke van Leeuwen
These portraits (Edition 9) are the graduation work of Hanneke van Leeuwen (1984). Hanneke graduated this year from the photography department of the Academy in The Hague. We regularly show the work of photographers. This season, Hanneke opens our series. We wish her every success.
How they Work
The book “How they Work” has already been widely discussed in the press. Nevertheless, we would like to bring it to your attention one more time. The book is highly informative, both telling and illustrating the working situations of the designers The Frozen Fountain has grown up with. You will find it on our book table.
