Spot Store is a funky new shop and gallery space in Amsterdam’s Negen Straatjes run by really nice people, Tim and Niels.
With a fresh approach of working together with local artists, they present a whole range of design toys, prints, etchings, chairs, crabs, custom sneakers, laptop sleeves and canvases. As well as their own Spot tee’s with original prints, plus labels such as Ontour, Bench and more.
Friendly prices and great art. Drop by and see for yourself.

On Friday 24th April, the Zaishu Amsterdam Project stole the show with a front window installation – designed in a joint effort by Dolly Rogers and Weasel for Streetlab – a Dutch platform for young fashion designers and street artists.
A big thanks to everyone who came along and those who enjoyed the pizza buffet with us at the end of the night.
Graffiti stencil artist FAKE was also showing work and couldn’t keep his hands off a chair and took a blank Zaishu to spray. We can’t wait to see that one. Stay posted!
A special thanks also to Geert Van Kerckhove for his help setting up the exhibition, and to Jeroen Smeets from Reload Magazine who curated the exhibition and the fantastic crew at Streetlab for their support. Mwaaaah… We love you!
We’ve uploaded some pics of the evening to our flickr site. Check them out! If you’re in Amsterdam, the chairs will be on display and for sale at Streetlab until the end of May.

We invited a diverse range of artists to use Zaishu chairs as their canvas and transform them using all their artistic ingenuity. This playful Zaishu accordian chair was created by artists Thomas Reineke & Wobbe van der Meulen. Thomas sculptured the chair and Wobbe added the accordian component to the top. It really does play when you sit on it!
