ROBERT VAN EMBRICQS
Robert van Embricqs is fascinated by the aesthetically pleasing, yet intricate complexity of the natural form. Finding inspiration for his designs in bone structure, plant life and movement, one question remained ever present:
‘To what degree is an object capable of dictating its own design?’
This question led him to develop a minimalistic design approach that can best be described as a balanced collaboration between the designer and his material. In this relationship, the material is given the opportunity to blossom in the designated way, shape or form, with the help of the creator as a conductor.
Another important aspect of his design process is a conscious focus on marrying functionality with an aesthetically pleasing look. This doesn’t necessarily mean one has to be burdened by conformity, let alone predictability.
The possibility to bring an object to life has resulted in 'Red Dot Award' winning furniture designs in which transformation is the key.
Aside continuing his furniture line, Robert van Embricqs establishes flexible concepts on a bigger scale by focusing on the interaction between the users and the creation.
