For this edition, the theme chosen was beauty. This book, which is based on the exhibition at the KMSK, contains a number of articles about beauty and an overview of the participating designers. Beauty is examined on the basis of chairs and bowls, starting with an archetype of these objects and ending with highly exuberant or atypical chairs and bowls. This selection is complemented by a limited number of other objects. In this way, the unity and heterogeneity of beauty is brought to the fore. Furthermore, contemporary design is confronted with historical pieces, chosen by Belgian designers.
Jean-François D’Or. Moodboards€29.90
Unconstrained, poetic and timeless. That is how we can characterise the designs of Jean-François D’Or. The Belgian Designer of the Year 2013 does not put himself in the spotlight with large showpieces, but with his special talent he leaves his own mark on the field of smaller home and interior accessories such as bowls, lamps, vases, coat racks, door handles, mirrors,… Small touches that in all subtlety colour an interior and at the same time very ‘democratic’ design that can seduce a large public.
