Each summer season Bershka is looking for young, talented designers to showcase their designs as Bershka window displays. For the fifth edition of the B.Y.D.P Bershka asked us and we have teamed up with design studio Siebring & Zoetmulder from Rotterdam.
In the windows you can see a collage of patterns LileSadi combined with our furniture. Of course, the Gems Daily shows also in shop windows, this wall cabinet is designed jointly. The Daily Gems wall shelving is besides its functionality also a stage for a wonderful collage – or rather: a tangible and material still life.
It was a fantastic experience when the team of Bershka came to visit us in our studios in Rotterdam, to meet and interview us personally. We had the possibility to tell more about our project, about our city and the collaboration. Do not miss the movie about us and dive into our Dutch creative spirit!
We are excited that ‘Daily Gems’ will be travelling to 18 different cities worldwide to be exhibited. We will be able to reveal more about it soon.
About Daily Gems
We collaborated with Dutch furniture designers Siebring&Zoetmulder and combined our aesthetics to create an atmosphere that represents a delicate universe with a minimalistic touch. The graphic patterns and soft colours of the collection of LileSadi matches well with the raw and light aspect of the proportions and materialization of S&Z.
‘We combined the best of both worlds. Creating a design with a multi disciplinary background, we believe through collaborating and focusing on our individual skillsets we can create better and more in-depth design.
Our first common product , the ‘Daily Gems’ cabinet’ is not only a functional organizer, but also a playground for aesthetic compositions of materials, structures and shapes. Suddenly your daily artifacts become part of what looks like a classical Dutch still life painting,the concept that gives roots to the name ‘Daily gems’.

We are back from Milan. A week of intense work but also full of nice evenings, inspiration and great opportunities to meet interesting people.
Today we share with you our stand at Salone Satellite. We were really happy with the location and neighbors. They were all really helpful for example when we needed a staircase or to help us giving their opinion on last minute decisions. We talked with people from all over the world and shared ideas with students and professionals from all sort of backgrounds.
We have now even more projects to work on and an experience that we will always remember.
During my stay in Florence in April I was invited by my friend Giulia to stay at her house and I was really amazed by the authenticity of her style, mixing old artifacts which she found in the attic of the old Medici villa of her family with modern elements. The house and the garden with the old statues is a magical place..
It has this aura of telling the stories of all the people which lived in it since centuries.
When we first saw this inspiring book Material Alchemy at the Rotterdam bookshop we didn’t know what it was about. We were drawn to it by the beautiful cover image with dusty and powdery shades . When we read that it presents the most innovative, thought-provoking design approaches to material in the 21st century, we absolutely needed to have it.
It is such a source of inspiration in terms of colors and processes. It provides key insights into how materials will be utilized to shape our future environments. Material Alchemy explores the use of materials in art, design, fashion and architecture, from the kitchen to the science laboratory.
