David Mesguich - LUZ 1.0 (2012)
In september 2012 i was invited to curate Nuit Blanche in Clichy, a suburb of Paris. I was also asked to realise a sculpture in a public space.
This piece symbolizes the passage from one dimension to another, from concrete to mental world.
Damien Gernay - Playtime (2009)
Playtime is a modular shelf referring to the structured and colorful universe of Jacques Tati’s eponymic movie in which aseptic environment and architecture turn life into a sharp and rational mechanic in which humans’ instincts are struggling. Playtime’s module can be fixed in height different positions. Combining modules makes the possibilities of composition infinite.
“Final installation of ‘DRAPER’.
A construction of a 8x12M PVC canvas sail that breaths new air in the reconversion of unused dockside gravel pits (by ROTOR).
On the outside the pale white canvas dynamically relives the original purpose of the gravel pit: a salt mine.
The interior interacts with the spectator. Revolving around you the sail gives you new perspectives with every blow of wind. Light particles bounce off the floor (with water on top due to occasional rain) and wall, coated with epoxy. Salt, inside and out.”

Oscar Jespers - De kapmantel (1922)
He was a friend of the Belgian painter Paul Joostens and of the poet Paul Van Ostaijen. He made his first direct carvings in 1917 in a tentative Cubist style. His Constructivism began to assert itself in 1921, while he was finding a balance between material and technique, but later in the decade he moved towards Expressionism.

Atelier Vens Vanbelle - Tijl & Indra (2011)
More structures within structures, this time a house times 2 located in Gent, Belgium. Designed by Atelier Vens Vanbelle, rough, wooden planks create a separate ‘home’ for the kitchen, this unusual material chosen to differentiate between House 1 and House 2. Stairs lead above the cooking area to a viewing balcony looking down on to the living and dining areas below. It also serves as a small desk nook and offers a view over the garden. Beautiful midcentury furniture throughout, the house feels truly lived in as opposed to the usual polished interiors. Plus you get to say you own two homes.
James Van Vossel - Invert (2010)
This 33-year old won himself several prices including an IMM and Interieur Design award. And we guess his work “Invert” can easily add others to the list. Invert is a design existing out of 50 pillows, which create your sofa. These 50 pillows can be pushed in the main frame, creating a support wherever needed.
