architecten de vylder vinck taillieu
The Brussels-based MANIERA gallery commissions furniture from architects and artists, giving them the opportunity to work outside of their usual practises and reconsider prevailing notions of furniture design. In 2016, the gallery commissioned architecture collective Architecten de Vylder Vinck Taillieu to create the Kamer Renee series. This was inspired by the study room of René Jacobs – a musician and conductor the collective admired. They took an architectural approach, crafting the furniture from layered and oiled chipboard to create structures that resemble tectonic plates.
