STUDIO PART

Designers at STUDIO PART are very aware that every object, drawing or even concept is interlinked and has an effect on its surrounding environment, be it physical or emotional.

Bio

The studio aims to look at design, not as a single occupation, but as a woven whole in a world of plenty, believing more in a universal connection than just the duality of their universe. This offers a gigantic freedom in design but also a huge consequential responsibility. Designers at STUDIO PART are very aware that every object, drawing or even concept is interlinked and has an effect on its surrounding environment, be it physical or emotional. Knowing this, they do not take their job lightly.

Each object is undeniably a part of its surroundings. This being one of the studio’s basic design rules, it creates a subtle connection between the objects, their users and other neighboring factors. When working on the humble scale of furniture it is important to be aware of the context. Misplacement of objects and materials can often lead to a speeded decay and a feeling of dissatisfaction. It is crucial to avoid these mistakes by connecting the dots carefully and creating work that is timelessly intertwined to its surroundings. By identifying with an object, it will last a lifetime and live on as a part of remembrance.

Shelving unit
Local oak

Grown from a locally planted seed, the system P4 owes its origin to the love for the dovetail joint. Maximizing this ancient craft we were able to make a cradle to cradle shelving system that does not use any glue and is therefore a supreme example of the conscious crafting we aim to do. The aesthetics, much like the wood joints and the traditional production method, are of a timeless character. Evoking minimalism while maintaining a warm wooden feel.

Several sizes available
Clear varnished blue rolled steel

Originally designed for an optician showroom these tables are truly an optical experience. Guiding your gaze in, up, down and around the wavelike motions. Thanks to its shape, the rugged blue rolled sheet metal base takes you on a dynamic exploration. Making it transparently light as well as monolithically steadfast. Available in a wide range of sizes, keeping it’s characteristic ratio.
 

Chair
Powder-coated steel
Folded plywood and leather

The frame of this chair is an ode to the longstanding tradition of tube bending in the Belgian furniture scene. Two mirrored steel lines dance around the plywood and leather seating, form a union leading upward and embrace the leather backrest. There are no trivialities with this design yet the simple geometrical duet between the circular seat and rectangular backrest render the whole a poetic playfulness.
