Snowpuppe went icefishing with Nellianna

Snowpuppe:
I met Nellianna in 2006, when I travelled through Scandinavia. 
We went ice fishing. 
We didn’t catch any fish, but I did catch adventures.

Welcome to our independent studio. Here we design and make paper lamps for the home and for public spaces like libraries. We use natural materials, mostly paper and some wood. We are proud that all our lamps are made by hand and by small-scale production in the Netherlands.

We like to be as close to the sea as possible, that’s why our studio is based in Scheveningen.  

This blog will be about us, we will take you on tour, share our ideas and how we work. We will introduce the Snowpuppe team to you through these blog.

Nellianna was the first person Snowpuppe met, so we start with interviewing Nellianna.
