Studio Posen, the graphic design studio by Kristel Posen, who designed The Fresh Light’s logo too, teamed up with Anna Timmermans for this exciting project. They did a wonderful job designing the logo and menu layout for restaurant Yugen, runned by sisters Chloë and Magali, which was popping up during spring time in the Japanese garden in Hasselt.

Nathalie Van Durme is the face behind graphic design label Studio 19.09. She develops visual concepts with a strong focus on detail. Her work is based on the principles of a strong concept, simplicity, clarity and character. She is inspired by the passion of her clients and truly cares about their success. The studio focuses on creating a real story, a unique design and a perfect identity.

In this portret shoot I tried to capture the relationship between the designer, the lovely Nathalie, the design process and the final result. Because these three aspects are important to tell the story of Studio 19.09.

The Future Archive

Yesterday I had the honor to be part of ‘Future Archive‘, an innovative project at Biennale Interieur curated by BaronessO. A selection of inspiring objects and furniture were selected to create a unique visual installation. I worked on a series of abstract compositions, determined by the strong shapes of the objects. Planes, lines and curves were the basic elements to build this series. By shooting the settings from top, and  using square view frames, the images became more abstract and universal. The soft and often complementary colors were used like it were paintings.

It was an amazing experience to style and shoot this images in the environment of the Biennale Interieur. Improvisation (I didn’t know which objects to expect) and interaction (instant feedback of the visitors hanging around) were key elements of the day. Thanks Baroness O. and Biennale Interieur for the opportunity and making this possible!

Also a special thank you to Julie from granola brand Floom, to add the surprising element of food into the project!

Linen by Verilin, tiles by David & Goliath, ceramics by Anna Badur, Cathérine Lovatt and Petite Friture, jewels by Lien Hereijgers, petanque balls by Jean François D’or, diaries by Marjolein Delhaas, glasses by Theo, wire numbers by NakNak, metallic bowls and colored baskets by Normann Copenhagen, colored candle holders by Imke Höfker, marble tables by Atelier Haussmann and stone sample by Van Den Weghe.
