Partnered up with 290 square meters founder Ido de Voos in 2012 to build an online presence. The past 3 years 290sqm.com has been a good translation from a physical concept store to a web entity including social media platforms.
Ido and I thought the event should be shopping in a non-traditional environment (flea-market, atelier, bar, old factory etc.) at a non-traditional time (at night) in combination with cocktails, music, art, sport and what ever comes into our minds. The first cocktails & shopping was in November 2004 in the old Looiersmarket in Amsterdam. Known as an old market, where secondhand goods where sold. C&S transformed this old run down flea-market into paradise. That is a paradise for aficionados of art, skateboarding, dancing, clothing and of course cocktails. Nobody knew what to expect, so it was extremely hard getting the place empty at 12:00.
