Floor Koomen

Floor Koomen (1972) is a graphic designer who lives and works in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She loves tiny maps on stamps and has been collecting them and other peculiar items from specific places for many years. It started when she stumbled upon the exclave of Cabinda, north of Angola, where they simply overprinted the existing stamps with the autograph of the exiled president. The most curious item in the collection is perhaps a Chinese 3D puzzle of the Senkaku Islands, or maybe the giftset with composite money from Transnistria. The collection is ever growing and can be seen on De Facto, a project in collaboration with journalist Jorie Horsthuis. Floor Koomen also teaches at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, the university of applied sciences for Fine Arts and Design in Amsterdam.
