International interior enthousiasts have flocked Milan this week for the 55th edition of Salone del Mobile. The event marks the biggest date on the world's furniture calendar and features countless exhibitions and presentations, among which Masterly – The Dutch in Milano.

Another not to be missed event is the collaboration between The Piet Boon Collection and Dutch artist Pleunie Buyink, which promisses to be a sight for sore eyes. Buyink's Limber Gems are combined with collection novelties and various pieces of art, thus creating enriching combinations.

Pleunie Buyink studied Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven and Fashion Design at Artemis Rotterdam. Her love for fashion, interior design and materials is always visible in her work. She researches the possibility to create new materials and to combine different techniques. In both smaller and monumental works, Buyink aspires to capture the essence of layers. Each object is layered in a number of ways, not only in the material of the work, but also layering of the colors and the way the object interacts. Once the light touches the limber gems the interplay between the rugged crinkly background, the ruff edges and the warm colors really starts.

With Limber Gem, the artist creates artworks that also function as elegant interior jewellery. The works are behaving as chameleons playing with incoming light, reflection and colour in every interior. Pleunie Buyink is represented by VanGoghle member Sophie Maree Gallery, which gives you the oppurtunity to check out her wonderful creations!
