Warm Hart Rotterdam | Rotterdam

This is an event we love to support: Warm Hart Rotterdam! As there are many people living among us who will have no warm Christmas at all, Warm Hart Rotterdam will reach out to those in need. On 20 December there will be free coffee, tea and warm Christmas gifts for the homeless in Rotterdam. On 21 and 22 December, they will also help out families and allow them the joy of giving their children a special Christmas with respect. In order to provide everyone with a hot drink these days, please take a look at project ’Suspended Coffee’. For just € 1,50 you can pay a hot drink for someone else who cannot afford it.

Donations of new, unwrapped gifts and cash are also highly appreciated and will be accepted through December 18. Sofacompany NL is also running a awesome campaign. A large number of fabulous showroom furniture will be on sale during the holiday season at 40 – 70% off and 10% of the sales will go to this charity. Warm Hart Rotterdam is a initiative by Guido Leurs (Cinta Coffee) and Evana Kuik (INCONCEPT).

Kokodama | Sri Lanka – The Netherlands

Hanging plants or works of living art? Interior inspiration? The Kokodama is a handmade sphere made from natural coco fibres. The inspiration for this concept lays in the Japanese bonsai-technique to process plants in Moss Balls. With its natural look and materials, the Kokodama is the indoor gardening trend you’ll love. Perfect for every season and super pretty!

Create your own piece of nature by utilizing various sizes and plants. The plants are easy to care for and effective at increasing oxygen and clearing out toxins for cleaner breathing air, some of which even have the NASA stamp of approval. Brighten up any space by adding more green to your room or office.

Rotterdam Museum | Rotterdam

What does the development of the Coolsingel say about how Rotterdam sees itself, and its changing ambitions as a city? The Museum Rotterdam organized an exhibition to present the stories of Coolsingel’s centuries of changes. It is an ode to this vibrant heart of Rotterdam. In the next three years the new Coolsingel will become a real urban boulevard with lots of green where locals can stroll and shop. The exhibition is composed around a timeline, and offers an impressive cinematic experience. Stories about historical objects shed light on key themes.

Open from 4 November 2017 to 8 April 2018.
