'The very latest, called the Blizzard Light, will be hard to miss. It's a standard blue gas canister, topped with an exquisitely beautiful hand-blown glass shade that, for the Alice In Wonderland model, measures 1.5m across.' (The Guardian over Hella Jongerius' Blizzard Light uit 2002)Na de Nederlandse ontwerper Tord Boontje - wie? - is in het Design Museum in Londen nu een tentoonstelling van het werk Hella Jongerius te zien. In een artikel met de ondertitel 'Dutch courage' prijst The Guardian haar gelukkig dat ze in Nederland is geboren - ook vanwege de rijkelijk vloeiende subsidies natuurlijk:

"Hella Jongerius is a contrary sort of woman. She takes familiar things and then makes them very strange indeed. Tall and quietly authoritative, she was lucky enough to have been born in the Netherlands, where designers who work on the fringes of art are taken quite seriously and even indulged with government money."

> The Guardian in To die for - ik zou het bijna voor één van die lampen hier boven over hebben - over ontwerpster Hella Jongerius en haar tentoonstelling in het Design Museum in Londen (tot 26 oktober).
