We introduce you to our newest concept PLAYGROUND at OODE. By creating a playful carpet on our gallery floor, we created an actual playground for art and design. The public can play around with the graphic elements, the furniture and even the art on the walls. A constant changing environment for these pieces, is even for us as a gallery inspiring. New, unexpected combinations are made. Artworks go horizontal, furniture sometimes vertical. We want to show the public that our art is not static. That even at home things can be changed once in a while and perhaps can be placed differently to change our perception and even the relationship we have with our personal items…

Laura Scheringa (1986, Geleen) is a visual artist. Graduated at the ABKMaastricht in 2008 and at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2011. Laura admires landscapes. Rock formations is one of Laura Scheringa’s first art collection. Rock Formations as a representation of time: layers of history that become visible. A timelapse of earth. In her latest collection (pasty purple) the textures and colours are more close up. Typical in this collection is the use of neon as a background.




We have rescued these lost artpieces from The Foundation of Disinherited goods. We call them orphaned art. For the people that don’t know the background of OODE: we try to rescue art from closed museums, art institutions: orphaned art. You can visit OODE or look online and adopt a piece of art so they get the wall they deserve.



We present you the first pieces of our newest art collection CAPSULE. This collection is an OODE original.
Outlines of boxes, buildings, shifting patterns and shapes. Made out of textured cardboard – these artworks are always changing depending on the surrounding or point of view.



We at OODE have more art than most people think. In the shop is a chest of drawers full of art. Most of the art in this drawer is orphaned art.
It’s in the drawer because the art isn’t framed. As a result, the art does not get the attention it deserves.

These art pieces are still looking for a new owner. Maybe there’s something in there for you.

We at OODE love this collection because of the concept and the beautiful outcome. Every painting has its own story and it is up to you to fill in the story. For more information, just contact us.






Industrial designer Elise Luttik (1983) plays with transparency in her high-end furniture designs. She works with open structures and interesting transparent materials like fabric, silicon and translucent film.

The transparent Prismania collection by Studio Elise Luttink. At one point you can barely see it, take another step and it will show you all the colours of the spectrum due to its design.







Mus Hersmus is a female contemporary artists.
For as long as she can remember she has been fascinated by “the old days”. Old stuff, clothes and images are a big attraction for her. In her work she tries to evoke the same feeling by playing with color, cutouts and blurring.






Caroline van Ginkel is a Dutch textile artist with a background in fashion as a patternmaker and seamstress. Her style is characterized by a minimal shape with the least possible additions and a keen attention to detail. She loves to play with textures and shapes. Subtle interventions like removing or adding space. Every piece is unique.




Naomi Remijn moves with her craft work between art and design. With Zeeland roots and a predilection for textiles, work is made based on Zeeland traditional costumes. She admires the old textile technique and handicraft, because it takes a lot of time and effort.




Jens van Deursen is a Dutch furniture designer. This seating furniture is made of polyester foam and realized by minimizing the waste produced by excess material of which it is composed.

A comfortable and fun piece of design that can be coated in any color upon request, from the bright yellow of a summer sun to the blue of the vast sea.


Moos is obtained from a block of polyester foam using 2D cutting techniques with minimal material loss. Self-supporting due to the high density of the foam. This makes Moos a graphic and comfortable piece of furniture for any environment.



SERVIE JANSSEN (1949-2018)




Servie Janssen was a Dutch sculpturer, painter and also active in the field of performance art.

OODE works together with the foundation of Servie Janssen to find new owners for these beautiful abstract paintings, often based on windows and doors. These paintings are produced between 1970 – 1990.




We have a very interesting orphaned collection of silkscreen on glass by Titia Ex. Glass panels, with layers from black, blue to bright yellow. Pictures with windows, that show or block what is behind. Reflection, paint and movement that are part of the composition, sometimes showing more sometimes just a little bit of transparancy.
Titia Ex is a visual artist based in Amsterdam. Ex studied film and photography at the Rijksakademie (1988) in Amsterdam and was artist in residence (1989) at the video department of the Musashino Art University in Tokyo.
Light art
She started to work with light as a choreographer light, form, time and atmosphere in theaters. She worked together with dancers, actors and musicians. At the post academic art institute the Rijksakademie, she created her first installations in which light became of great value as an autonomous visual element.

COR VAN WEELE (1918-1989)

At OODE we present an orphaned collection by Dutch photographer Cor van Weele (1918-1989).

Van Weele worked during the war several years for photographers Nell Herbert (Haarlem), Godfried de Groot (Amsterdam) and Willy Schurman (The Hague). During the war he ended up in camp Muehlberg/Elbe and illegally photographed the hardships of his fellow sufferers. He settled in Amsterdam after the war and developed into an excellent portrait photographer until the mid-1950s. Many of his glass negatives from this period have survived. Gradually he shifted his field of activity to commissioned and documentary photography. He was an inspired teacher at the Film Academy (1960s) and the Rietveld Academy (1970s). The works of OODE show a variety of graphic works, portraits, landscapes and sceneries. All with quite harsh contrasts and showing different aspects of moments in life he encountered.



Fred Gubbels

Fred Gubbels (1941-2014) lived in weert , he was a graphic artist, painter and draftsman. He studied graphic school and self-taught in Eindhoven. His art is mixed media artworks from about 1985. Often made with cardboard boxes – cut, glued and painted.

His most famous works are from the period in which the horizon is outlined low with an all-dominating sky above. Landscape is by far his most loved genre. Less well known are the more abstract works with an emphatic use of color

Her work is autonomous. She presents her ideas in metal objects and paintings.

It’s a minimalistic art piece with a combination of  straight lines and a circles, which has several ways to hang up the piece. By walking around it, you see the different angles.

COEN KAAYK // 1947 – 2014


The architecture of light and color.

Brightly colored gems, capturing the colors of sunshine. Their shapes reduced to rudimental forms of kubes, pyramids or multi-faceted diamonds. Colors stacked, placed next to each-other like a pointillist painting. The work of Coen Kaayk (1947-2014) is an ode to color. Playful, colorful and bursting with joy.

Kaayk dedicated his career to investigate the optical relationship between shape, color and light. In a span of 40 years Kaayk created an impressive oeuvre of hundreds of autonomous sculptures, ranging from tiny table objects to room filling landscapes. Every piece, no matter the scale, is treated with the same intense urge to investigate the optical relations between shape, color and light. His work can be seen as a constant search to master the translucent material and and continuous quest to refine the relationship between material, shape, color and light.

Kaayks Magnus opus is De bouwplaats (2014) an impressive room filling installations of acrylic objects. He created an urban landscape, reminiscent  of modernist architecture. He used industrially produced acrylic resin to create an imaginative city of light and color. The city of Tiel has bought the work and installed it in one of its cultural centres.

Gallery OODE honoured to present a curated selection of 10 small objects by this interesting artist. Every piece is unique in shape, color and composition. They make are a great addition to any interior and art collection.
