This Brussels studio cultivates a carefully reasoned approach to graphic design. Contemporary, meticulous and rather trendy, the Stoëmp style is centred on experience and ethical practices. TLmag met with Italian-Polish designer-duo Gaetano Licata and Wojciech Szlachta, the source for the most multicultural “stoemp” in the Belgian capital.
Designing fabrics that are exported around the world, these two designers are as close as they are complementary. TLmag meets with half of the otherwise inseparable duo Barbara Repole, who, together with Sébastien Pescarollo, co-founded Belgian label ‘PIECEOFCHIC’.
In a surprising collaboration with Swatch, Joe Tilson combines colourful Venice-inspired imagery for his site-specific installation ‘The Flags’ and releases a special edition watch during this year’s Venice Biennale.
An instructor at La Cambre Mode(s) for a decade, Pierre Daras is also artistic director for several brands that trust him with their image. TLmag met with this modest but dedicated man who gives us his – actually quite simple – vision of fashion.
Organised by the WCC•BF, Françoise Vanderauwera for Belgium, Brune Boyer for France and Sofia Björkman for Sweden are the three curators for this sixth edition of the European Triennial for Contemporary Jewellery. Discover their highlighted pieces on show until 4 February at Les Anciens Abattoirs in Mons.
