Materia Inspiration Centre, the only permanent materials exhibition in the Netherlands, full with new and innovative materials for creative professionals. (via notcot)
i would totally use this inspiration center if i had one near me. our library can not hold nearly everything that is inspiring. the stark atmosphere really makes the finishes pop too...which i love!

i was just talking the other night with a friend about how much i missed my 1966 vespa allstate. she was a great scooter! i sold her to help buy my house though, which is a fair trade. well, if i could get another one, this would be it. made out of wood! it's amazing! look at all of the different species of wood. drool. click here to see more photos of the scoot and also of a car. so cool.
