Preview M&O: Jules Wabbes revisited
Jules Wabbes (1919-1974) is the indisputable ambassador of Belgian design of the 60s and 70s, known for designing the international science pavilion for the World Exhibition in Brussels, the royal couple’s apartment on the Godetia and the offices of the General Bank. Wabbes created his own furniture and founded Le Mobilier Universel, a production and distribution company. His tables, desks and bookcases constructed of glued blocks of end grain tropical hardwood (bois de bout) soon became his trademark. Bulo displays a new series of Jules Wabbes furniture during Maison & Objet from 21 till 25 January!
