Rombaut / Belgium
Mats Rombaut’s design is about modernizing our way of thinking. By proposing strong aesthetics and humanist values, ROMBAUT aims to provide a way forward for a world in need of change – “ a progressive concept for a more equitable future. The underlying vision is of an ecological way of life through stark, exposed designs where materials play a fundamental part, both in style and in philosophy. Color, form and detailing are precise, essential and forward-looking. The style offered is modern and pure. The craftsmanship of ROMBAUT transforms materials at a fundamental level, creating new material innovations out of stone, tree bark, natural rubber, cotton cellulose and coconut fiber. All materials and fabrics are sustainably engineered – there are no toxic or animal-derived substances involved. Instead ROMBAUT develops plant-based materials and is determined to protect bio-diversity in our environment.
