Tell your story to Masaaki, he’s listening. This incredible self-proclaimed stamp man will be creating completely unique, hand-made cards in store using his stamp collection, taking inspiration from you. Make a card for someone you love or just to keep. Masaaki will be in store every Saturday in May from 10am to 5pm starting on the 11 May.
Tokyo-born Masaaki (33) crafts all his own stamps by hand in his studio in The Hague where he is based. Graphic designer by day and stamp maker for the sheer love of it, Masaaki is part of a rare breed of stamp crafters.
For one of his current projects, Nice to Stamp You Masaaki translates your personality into a one-of-a-kind stamp. Sit down with Masaaki for a chat over coffee and based on the outcome he creates your stamp. We love.
Hand made cards by Masaaki: €3.50 each
We here at OPTIONS! couldn't be any happier that spring is just around the corner, and we're sure you're just as excited! To get in the mood for daffodils and picnics, we've got a whole cart full of springtime gifts.
Fill up the Easter basket with green gorillas, tiny chocolate eggs, and bunnies galore! Invite in the spring robins with a DIY birdhouse. And don't worry if the birdies don't show up just yet – we've got plenty of colorful bird pins to tide you over.
This Sunday from 15 to 17.00, the final WinterSALON will be streaming live from OPTIONS!. This week, designers and journalists will be reviewing this year's program, discussing Nordic design, and debating the question "do we really need more fashion weeks?"
