Pieter Maes

simple feeling or a deep fascination for a certain shape or detail is largely the starting point for Belgian designer Pieter Maes works. Sculptural and highly tactile, their forms are oftentimes inspired by ancient artefacts from all corners of the world, conceived through the use of contemporary technologies and then materialised through the traditional know-how of master craftsmen. Paris-based Maes’s pieces, which border between design and art, are the result of his divergent thinking; sometimes in compliance with traditional and rational ideals of a piece of furniture, other times denouncing these same ideals for the sake of conveying a particular feeling. A case in point, the Xxx dining chair was designed to express the notion of an embrace.
