Nortstudio or the happy use of color

Based in Antwerp, this couple of designers, both on stage and off, have managed to merge their talents. While Kathleen Opdenacker’s approach is rooted in graphic design, a taste for materials and a sense of detail, Jef De Brabander is more oriented towards industrial engineering, in-depth technical knowledge, and craftsmanship. A happy union from which intense and colorful creations have emerged, starting with the “Form” range, a collection of tables and stools, all born from a cylindrical shape in bent wood, which has been enlarged, contracted, cut in half or multiplied. In another genre, the “FINITE \ INFINITE” collection is inspired by three abandoned buildings with strong architectural silhouettes. Geometries highlighted by the mirror and polished steel, suggesting infinity.
