— 2020, Antwerp, Belgium
Desingel10

Since 2004, different furniture and interiors were designed for arts centre deSingel in Antwerp. Every design is based on the architecture of the building or space itself, designed by Léon Stynen. The space is built up around perspectives and compositions of golden section proportions.

The artist lodges are furnished with an installation that makes a pleasant place for 2, but also for 30 people. Within the low spaces without daylight and with a low ceiling, the aim was to create places with a pleasant atmosphere. The spaces are 'wrapped' with screens like panelling, a series of vertical slats with rear lighting. Photography by Sarah Blee

2. Moving through the space, the perspective changes and the screens disguise/reveal ever-changing backgrounds. The light behind the scenes gives the room a more intimate atmosphere. Photography by Sarah Blee
