Belgium Calling
26.03.18

Next month, following Milan Design Week, we’ve planned a quick detour to Belgium, namely Brussels and Antwerp. With a growing interest in Belgian architecture and design, we’re planning on absorbing past and present in equal measure. There’s no doubt the design world has turned its attention to this European design destination thanks to the likes of Axel Vervoordt, Vincent Van Duysen and Nicolas Schuybroek, however we’re also intrigued by the legacy of greats such as architect Victor Horta (1861 – 1947). You’ll find us at the Horta Museum (pictured) located in Horta’s private house and studio. Built between 1898 and 1901 in Brussels, the two buildings are typical of Art Nouveau at its height. This decorative style is out of sync with our more modernist leanings at NHO, however the sheer scale and detailing is undeniably absorbing. Photography courtesy of Frederik Vercruysee.
