January 10th 2013 – The Netherlands is known to get cold. Very cold. Dutch designer Joost van Veldhuizen, founder of VanJoost, created a portable standing fireplace to help beat the freeze. Calling the little heater Brazier ‘Mikado’, Veldhuizen’s cool arrangement of bent steel is able to maintain its sturdiness, even amongst the very spastic set of legs. Because the Mikado is light weight and compact, it can easily be moved from spot to spot depending on where the outdoor gathering is happening.

Joost van Veldhuizen is a young dutch design talent, and the driving power behind the upcoming label VanJoost. VanJoost’s latest piece of work is the NOAH Cradle, a beautiful hand crafted wood crib that can be hung from a tree in an open forest – or a ceiling in your nursery. Each cradle is constructed on Joost van Veldhuizen’s farm in the rural Dutch countryside of the Veluwe where he scoops wood out of a massive block of wood to sculpt the final shape!
