In my weird world of coincidences it just happened, as I was doing my research for this post
( had the pictures, scrolled the website to find out more about the creative behind these objects,looked trough his instagram feed… where I didn't find a lot about him I have to say…)
I find myself at a party going where a friend posts a picture on instagram tagging him in the pic. I was like.. 'What? Wait, that guy is here??)
So I immediately went over and told him about my snooping around, and that I like his work, awkward...
I was the perfect occasion to find out a bit more...
So, his name, Nick Bal, a self made creative guy, studied engineering before getting his crafty side on.
What he does: he is part of the creative team that dresses the Urban Outfitters stores. Yup, all that cool furniture and pieces in the windows, it's all specially made for UO. Who knew! ( love discovering all these 'hidden' jobs! Never thought about it actually)
But he also makes these cool light boxes I have seen popping up everywhere.
At The Love Below a while ago, at the new Caffènation in Amsterdam, at LN Beanies pop up shop…
These would just be perfect everywhere in my house actually!
