view web site ›'s insider take:

A showcase for top contemporary Dutch designers, this housewares shop on the Prinsengracht canal single-handedly makes the case for Amsterdam's status as a new style center. Among the greatest design hits on view: the Moooi Studio's collection of neo-baroque papier-mâché furniture; Piet Hein Eek's garden chairs constructed from recycled wood; Tord Boontje's ceramic tableware splashed with cobalt-blue flowers and butterflies; and an updated line from the Makkum porcelain factory that comes unglazed and imprinted with iconic images (most fun: the Hans Brinker skate, its long shoelaces unfurling in a tangled explosion). While all the references to Dutch design traditions lends these showpieces their historic gravitas, you'll probably have to settle for something easier to bring home, like the only-in-cerebral-Amsterdam Goethe and Schiller salt and pepper shakers.

Open Mondays 1 to 6 pm, Tuesday through Friday 10 am to 6 pm, Saturday 10 am to 5 pm.
