Come find the Poplars
After being nominated for the Dutch Design Awards 2019, the Poplars by Weltevree are on show at the Dutch Design Week this year. The Poplars show that the redefining of iconic existing products can be a great alternative to plastic. These shoes are unmistakably inspired by the cultural legacy of designer Lex Pott: the Dutch wooden clog. After centuries of no change, Lex Pott has geared up the wooden shoe for the future with a new and slick silhouette. Without losing the comfort and benefits from the wooden shoes we all know, because “after all these years, it’s still a convenient shoe for gardening.”
Durability and craft meet in the local Krajenbrink Klompenfabriek, one of the last remaining authentic clog factories in the Netherlands, to create the Poplars, As is tradition, each Poplar is made from a single log of Dutch poplar wood with little to no waste. They are then finished in a natural nude or dusty pink color.

Nominated for the Dutch Design Awards in 2017 the Groundfridge by Studio Floris Schoonderbeek will now be presented at the DDW 2019. The Groundfridge has successfully been developed into a product that is ready to be launched onto the market. The Groundfridge is a naturally cooled cellar in which you can store food and wine. The sustainable design stimulates you to save energy, to prevent food waste and to share communal space with others. It is a perfect fit to durable shared gardening projects and answers to needs of those who live a self-sufficient life.
