Impressed : Interieur Kortrijk 2014

Even though I'm belgian I never went to Kortrijk during the design fair Interieur but this year I managed to get there. I chose not to visit the actual fair and went for the city trail to discover and to be impressed. (and to be proud too! WARNING: this will be a chauvinistic post)

Hydrophobia by 21-12
a limited edition jewelry collection inspired in form and material by the underwater world, I loved it!

During the day an exhibition of different brands in a former school building and at night a hotel to check-in and take a rest. Every room had its own atmosphere and I was pleasantly surprised by the lounge with a fresh display of the belgian brand Durlet.

Collection 1.0 by Anne Van Assche
A chair, a table and a closet but also a shoe, a dress and a jacket. One line drawn over multiple design disciplines in a black marbled theme.
At first sight it seems stone, but the marbled effect is the result of mixing black and white plastic.
The design is very straightforward, a style I like and with an interesting use of material. (the plastic didn't seem very durable, but it is prototype)

  1. Oh dan hebben we elkaar daar misschien gezien! (Ik stond op de stand van Baroness O. en soms ook bij Anne Van Assche) Ik was ook superenthousiast over het hotel en natuurlijk over Anne's collectie... (de kunststof moet inderdaad nog verder uitgewerkt worden, die stond nog niet helemaal op punt helaas)

    1. Ja misschien hebben we elkaar wel ontmoet :), want ik heb nog gevraagd uit welk materiaal het was gemaakt, de collectie zag er enorm goed uit!
