Career. For ten years he was responsible for the design department at Koch & Lowy in New York, specialists in the production of lighting and furniture. A long time graduate of the Ecole nationale supérieure des arts visuels de La Cambre in Brussels, he has since turned his back on industrial production in order to concentrate on unique pieces, towards the ultimate in made-to-measure and is now seen as a ‘Furniture Artist’.
Signature Style. His strong, highly graphic, marquetry-faced furniture. An Op-Art style revisited, where pattern is king, thanks to the combination of fine woods. For his elaborate creations which are like truly precious pieces.
He loves. Combining fine woods: sycamore, ebony, amaranth, used in a patchwork of patterns recreating relief through trompe l’œil. The rigorous line of the silhouettes of his furniture which play with the contrast of the surfaces. Doors open like beetle wings revealing beautifully refined, coloured laquer interiors.
Showstoppers. For his feel for drawing, and geometric figures which bring a unique sense of movement to his wood marquetry. A nod to the insatiable fashion for print and pattern that has taken hold in the world of interiors in the last few years.
What’s up. He continues to create made-to-measure furniture for an exacting and international clientele and for his loyal collectors.
