2010 Bram Boo
Bram Boo (°1971, Brussels) is a self-made independent designer. He became a furniture designer because he couldn't find the furniture he wanted for his own home. His furniture objects are autonomous objects. Not only do they surprise, they are also unique and full of poetry: ambiguous objects which force the viewer/user to re-think his familiar habits. Bram Boo's idiom resides in his combined functions: sitting, storing, working and leisure must not contradict or exclude each other. He breaks rules and rewrites them according to his own laws. He now designs for a number of Belgian and international manufacturers and brands. His work features in the collections of Indera (BE), Feld (BE) and Drisag (BE). We can expect school furniture from Vannerum (BE) this year, while his Overdose desk will also be launched this year in the Bulo (BE) carte blanche collection.
