In 2013 King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands came to Curaçao for a royal visit. The elementary school, Marnix, wanted to give them a gift for their visit, so we jumped at the opportunity and decided to donate a custom made royal Dutch Chichi® couple. The hotel that hosted the royal family also wanted to give them a special gift, therefore we were able to make a matching royal trio of princesses Catharina-Amalia, Alexia and Ariane. Serena also got to personally meet the King and Queen (sovereign) and even give them a handshake.
In 2013 Landhuis Bloemhof was hosting an expo in honor of the Dutch Royal family, where they asked Serena to participate as one of the artists from Curaçao. Serena is a person who is always looking for new ways to be innovative and improve her business. She always had the idea to create a lamp in the shape of Chichi®, this was the perfect opportunity for her to bring her idea to life. But being the unorthodox thinker that she is, she decided to put the lamp inside of a large orange cube. This was a way for her to challenge people to always think outside the box, even if you are in it.
