Collectible 2020, Alissa Volchkova, green glass vase

Alissa Volchkova is a French-Russian designer who, after several years in the field of architecture, decided to work on the scale of objects. She presents glass vases/glass cups and marble candle holders from her collection Stone Age, in homage to human identity and modernity, developed through the invention of tools.

 

 

Anton Alvarez

 

Collectible 2020, Anton Alvarez, ceramic mural sculpture

The Chilean-Swiss designer Anton Alvarez is known for his experimental creations and ceramics recognizable by the way he uses movement and gravity. Indeed, his designs, with their surprising and attractive colors, are unbalanced and irregular, and that is what makes their charm. We look forward to discovering the collection on view...

 

 

Arthur Hoffner

 

Collectible 2020, Arthur Hoffner, design fountain

Arthur Hoffner offers installations with experimental design, using water as the main element in his work. Indeed, the designer creates, reinterprets and innovates in the field of fountains, giving free rein to his creativity to combine unusual materials of all kinds with an overall sculptural and impressive design.

 

 

Atelier Sauvage

 

Collectible 2020, Atelier Sauvage, French design studio

Advocating a handcrafted approach to design, Atelier Sauvage is a young French design studio led by Albane Salmon. We have already had the opportunity to follow and appreciate her work, and are delighted to know that the studio will be part of this edition of Collectible 2020.

 

 

Charlotte Kidger

Collectible 2020, Charlotte Kidger, polyurethane foam dust

We discovered the work of Charlotte Kidger two years ago at the London Design Fair. Her unique work will once again focus on how industrial waste can be reprocessed and transformed into sculptural and functional objects. On the occasion of Collectible, the designer will present a series of objects made of recycled polyurethane foam powder and hand-dyed resin.

 

 

Christian+Jade

Collectible 2020, Curated section, Christian+Jade, Gathering heat

It is with great originality that the duo Christian+Jade decided to reinterpret the concept of the fireplace in this edition of Collectible. Gathering Heat is indeed a heating mechanism running on bio-ethanol and awakens, in the eyes of the visitor, primary instincts of conviviality but also the need to maintain and keep a fire "alive". Between a primordial tool for survival in the past and a generator of well-being today, this is a singular project to discover...

 

 

Emelianova

 

Collectible 2020, Emelianova studio

Ksenia Emelianova is a young Russian designer based in Italy, presenting her very first collection, Distortion, at the edition of Collectible 2020. It is by combining her extreme sensitivity to the world of art but also to design that her audacious pieces were born, between a raw rock and the aesthetics of the '70s. A minimal, timeless design.

 

 

Llewellyn Chupin

 

Collectible 2020, Llewellyn Chupin

The newly French designer Llewellyn Chupin made a high-profile debut in the design world at Collectible, presenting the Terra, an ode to archetypal forms. Made by the best French craftsmen in the field, the collection is made from local materials and creates an aura of delicacy around it. A promising name and pieces we haven't heard the last of it...

 

 

Mircea Anghel

 

Collectible 2020, Mircea Anghel designer

Mircea Anghel, Romanian designer who is already well known for his very massive tables will present his work in association with two other studios: DIM Atelier and Maria Ana Vasco Costa, in the Bespoke category at Collectible 2020.

 

 

müsing-sellés

 

Collectible 2020, müsing-sellés, American designers

The American design studio müsing-sellés, whose work we know very well, will be present among the Curated section. Detaching themselves from the functional utility of the objects they design, Marisa Müsing and Álvaro Gómez-Sellés are focused on creating new forms for new uses. As one of New York's hottest studios, their work has been seen at events like NYCxDesign and Sight Unseen OFFSITE.

Collectible 2020, sashaxsasha, Alexandra Gineva, Alexander Dobrovskiy

The architecture and design agency Masterskaya Be, comprised of Alexandra Gineva and Alexander Dobrovskiy, will present the highly sculptural Bench 01B, made from MDF and rubber-effect paint. A new name to discover thanks to Collectible...

 

 

Savvas Laz

 

Collectible 2020, Savvas Laz, Greek designer

Savvas Laz is a Greek designer whose fame, thanks to Instagram, is growing. The principle? Recovering polystyrene scraps that the designer assembles and paints to give them a contemporary aesthetic. He has thus created the principle of Trashformers, or furniture and mutant objects, participating in the reduction of waste from the packaging industry. The challenge for Savvas Laz is to transform this waste material into an everyday object.

 

 

Ward Wijnant

 

Collectible 2020, Ward Wijnant

Ward Wijnant will present its latest collection, Blend, a light and furniture series paying homage to the different graphic effects and textures that can be achieved with a single material: wood. By using several sawing techniques, the wood grain appears alternately in the form of wide stripes or flames. Good work.

Collectible 2020, Fabula Gallery,

The fābula gallery, flying in from Moscow, will be presenting exclusive pieces of the brand ANA by the architect and designer Anastasia Tikhomirova, in collaboration with the gallery. A poetic and minimalist collection, which tells the story of an interior sculpture that dreamed of becoming a bookcase, of a coffee table that aspired to rise above its utilitarian nature... A sweet mix between art and design as we like it.

For this edition of Collectible 2020, we are honoured to be present as an exhibitor. On this occasion, we present the work of 12 international designers, in the framework of our online gallery, articulated around a marriage between lighting and seating. Indeed, these are the most sought-after pieces, the ones we collect in reality as well as in our minds, so we thought it would be interesting to highlight them during the show.

 

It is an eclectic collection which will be exhibited, resulting from the work of Adir Yakobi (Israel), Ana Buitrago (USA), Gregory Beson (USA), Hannah Bigeleisen (USA), Joseph Algieri (USA), Kevin Solis (USA), Malcolm Majer (USA), Objects with Narratives (Belgium), Objects for Objects (USA), Simon Déliot (France), Studio IAAI (Germany) and Supaform (Russia).

 

Some of the pieces, lamps, and chairs, were designed exclusively for the event, including Gregory Beson's pendant lamp, Hannah Bigeleisen's table lamp, a chair by Kevin Solis, a lamp by Joseph Algieri, a pendant light by Objects for Objects and a chair by Supaform. Meet us at stand 2_6!

Join Chloé Valette, founder of Huskdesignblog, Boris Devis, founder of Everyday Gallery, Amanda Pinathy (Stedelijk Museum), and Brut Collective for a design-talk on Saturday 8 March, at the Vanderborght Building.
