Although Venlet is generally regarded as the inventor of a ’rounded’, rather ‘organic’ and ‘human’ minimalism, he does not confine himself to a single style as a designer and interior architect. A comprehensive overview of a 20-year career, which not only revolutionised the world of office, outdoor and residential furniture (with award-winning creations such as the ‘Easy Rider’ and the ‘Viteo’ shower), but also introduced a totally new concept of interior architecture, in which objects and users are no longer dominated by the space, but vice versa.
The exhibition SERIAL EATER at CID Grand-Hornu dissects thirty years of experimentation with, and reflection on, the ‘object’ of food.
