PIERRE-EMMANUEL VANDEPUTTE

Born in 1991, Belgian designer Pierre-Emmanuel Vandeputte received his master’s degree in industrial design from the ENSAV La Cambre in 2014.

Bio

Following his graduation, he opened his design studio in the Brussels city center. Since the beginning of his professional career, Pierre-Emmanuel has been invited to exhibit annually in cities such as Copenhague, Paris, and Milan. From conception to production, Pierre-Emmanuel imbues his designs with a sense of the surreal and a respect for craftsmanship. Each piece has a unique voice, and emotional power.

Together, they speak to our more playful and curious nature, inviting us to live experiences unlimited by everyday expectations. His work is enigmatic, challenging what we consider to be evident in order to change habits and perceptions. His designs are indeed symbolic of an urge to break free from the mundane, to chase originality, while staying within the framework of the most noble materials.

Abacus

Abacus is a table composed of a powder-coated steel structure and black medium tops. Abacus pushes conventions aside. The table tops glide and move freely along the structure without any constraints, leaving the user free to choose the layout. As the plates disappear, the structure reveals itself and becomes a graphic element that takes shape in space. From a dinner for two, to a family meal, the table is composed and broken down in a playful way.

Abacus is a game of translation and composition between the different guests where the placements are random and change according to our needs and desires.

A cabin bed that impulses freedom

A child’s bed like a tree house, offering several paths to get into it. A bed that can be modified by the child and that will evolve with them. This is what Pierre-Emmanuel Vandeputte had in mind when Jean-Marie Bols, manufacturer of sustainable wooden furniture for children, invited him to take inspiration from Montessori teaching: “The idea is to offer the child a free choice, to generate their independence”, the designer explains. This has brought about this impressive “living object”, destined to become the central element of the room. Symmetrical on its axis, it can be modular and scalable. The lower part can be a space for playing, for resting, for storage or an office. On the top, the bed can face any direction and can be made double. “A nonconventional bed, that appeals to the child, because they are naturally open to the difference “, adds Vandeputte.
