Barbara Vos is an extremely clever designer from the Netherlands with her degree from the esteemed Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, the oldest art academy in Europe.
As you browse her projects online, you'll immediately sense that this lady is constantly thinking of ways to improve both the form and function of many things, from interiors to products. I particularly like how she added buttons to the inside of this drum shade, it's around 399,- Euro, but if you have the time and can craft something like it yourself, I would suspect this would make for another creative craft project for you to try. Isn't this great idea for those jars of spare buttons you collect?
