Launch party Rotterdam Told by People
Rotterdam Told by People, a city inspired set of mirrors designed by Catinca Tilea, will soon officially be launched at Sweatshop Deluxe. We would love to celebrate this with you!
The idea behind this design project was to create a map of people’s stories. In order to obtain this map, both locals and visitors were interviewed, their stories used as starting point in illustrating the map.
Rotterdam Told by People is a set of mirrors that reflect people’s memories and interpretations of the city. When looking into any of these mirrors you will not only see a reflection of yourself but also the experiences of others in the city.
The set was designed by Catinca Tilea in collaboration with researcher and storyteller Stefan Blokker. The mirrors have been commissioned by Sweatshop Deluxe and entered production mid September. They are now available on the store shelf and on the 22nd of November the launch of this tribute to Rotterdam will be celebrated with nice drinks and a great party. It would be lovely if you’d also be there and find out more about the Rotterdam Told by People mirrors.
