A simple feeling or a deep fascination for a certain shape or detail is the typical starting point for Belgian designer Pieter Maes’s works. Sculptural and highly tactile, their forms are often 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.
The pieces crafted by Paris-based Maes, which fall between design and art, are the result of his divergent thinking; sometimes in compliance with traditional and rational ideals of a piece of furniture, and sometimes denouncing these ideals for the sake of conveying a particular feeling. A case in point is the Bracci armchair, which was designed to express the notion of an embrace.
