RĒVO is helping children learn how to surf

Going surfing on a doctor’s order. How cool is that? It may sound a bit strange, but surfing is actually very helpful in improving the quality of life of children with Down Syndrome, ADHD, and forms of autism...

That is why in 2014 the Surf Project was founded. All over the coast of The Netherlands, surf lessons are given to children with Down, autism, and ADHD. The sea has the power to make you forget about any problems you may experience in everyday life. Learning how to surf helps you gain confidence. Confidence that not only shows when in the water, but also in other situations. Because the biggest lesson in learning how to surf lies in overcoming obstacles. And that can be extra difficult when you are dealing with physical and cognitive challenges daily. But once you’ve learned how to ride a wave, you built up the confidence to also try and learn other new things!

The Surf Project works with psychologists and psychiatrists who monitor progression with the children and research the benefits of surfing therapy. With the research, they hope to contribute to making surfing a standard form of therapy for children who need it. The actual surf lessons are given by a large group of dedicated volunteers. To continue the work they do, the Surf Project needs sponsors.

And that is where RĒVO comes in. RĒVO has always had a strong connection to water sports. Their blue water lens is a classic and it is perfect for the bright conditions on the water. With every pair of RĒVO sunglasses, the company is donating to the Surf Project. Last weekend in Zandvoort, they were able to donate another check to this much-needed initiative so children who need it most can keep on riding those waves!

So much to see during Rotterdam Art Week

So much to see during Rotterdam Art Week

Have you missed visiting places and SEEING beautiful things during the lockdown? If so, Rotterdam is definitely the place to be next weekend. The city will be filled with exhibitions, pop-up shows, and art and design fairs during Rotterdam Art Week...

Center of Rotterdam Art Week will be Art Rotterdam and design fair OBJECT, which will be held from the 1st until the 4th of July at the iconic Van Nelle Factory and the HAKA-building respectively. If there was ever a time when artists and designers were eager to connect with the public it has to be now, after months of being in lockdown. At Art Rotterdam, over 100 galleries will present work by up-and-coming artists but also more established ones. At the Van Nelle Factory visitors can see the art, meet the artists, and of course buy the art.

 

Design fair OBJECT will be focusing a lot on new design talent, giving recently graduated designers one of the first opportunities to show their work to the public. More than 100 designers will be showing furniture designs, lighting, textiles, jewelry, fashion, and architectural installations. If you see something you like, you can buy it on the spot. A special partnership with Catawiki allows you to also bid on prototypes or special editions of pieces of design in all price ranges.

One of the works on display at OBJECT has a special connection to NanaWoody&John, because of the material it is made of. Design studio Object Density from Eindhoven used deadstock optical lenses provided by a local optician to make a beautiful light piece named Lens Luminaire. An optical lens bends the light beams that fall through it and because no lens is ever the same the result is captivating. The Lens Luminaire shows the beauty of a lens that you can’t see at first sight.

Time to spoil your father

Time to spoil your father

Have you got your father’s day present ready yet? If not, why not buy him a fresh pair of sunglasses this year? It’s the perfect accessory for every father, including yours...

Of course, not all fathers are the same. But in the world of sunglasses, this doesn’t matter at all. So many fathers, so many brands and styles to choose from.

For the fathers who only leave the house when they are impeccably dressed and who follow all latest the fashion trends, we suggest you have a look at for instance the collections of Tom Ford, Balmain, Scotch & Soda, AM Eyewear and Calvin Klein. Here, you’ll definitely find a pair that complements your father’s fashion style.

For fathers that love being outside and that value functionality above anything else, we recommend you check out the sunglasses from Rēvo, Serengeti  or Rodenstock. They not only look good but also protect your father’s eyes from harmful UV rays.

Some fathers seem to have everything and buying a gift for them seems almost impossible. But even in this case, a new pair of sunglasses is the perfect gift idea. With a pair of sunglasses from Porsche Design, JaguarCazal, or Ørgreen, you’ll give your father a luxury accessory that never goes out of style.

Sun is shining and so are you

Sun is shining and so are you

It took some – okay, a lot of – patience from our side, but it looks like the sun is finally here. That calls for a celebration! Al fresco lunches in the park, pre-dinner drinks on the beach, and dinner in the city. See and be seen, all day long.

And what better way to look good in the summertime, than with some nice new sunglasses? Not only are they the first thing people see when they look at you, but they also protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. And let’s be honest, you only have one pair of eyes so better take good care of them.



The beauty is there are sunglasses for everyone’s taste. It doesn’t matter if you are the sporty type that loves to go and hike in nature or if you haven’t been out of the city in years. There are sunglasses for people who spent a lot of time on the road and therefore need high functionality from their glasses. And if you want to perfectly match your sunglasses with your new shoes and handbag, that’s also not a problem.



Retro-inspired styles are never out of style, and this year is of course no exception. New for 2021 are the big acetate frames with rectangular or cat-eye shapes with bold temples. For those who prefer metal frames, there are loads of options too. Oversized or small and understated, like we saw in the nineties.



But, where to find that perfect pair? At your local high-end optician of course. For the Netherlands, we selected a few of the best opticians for you to choose from. In each of those stores, you will find a great selection of frames from the best brands, for you to try on. And while you are there, why not have your eyes checked? Whether you need prescription glasses or not, an eye check-up is the best gift to your eyes.
