On the occasion of Design September in Brussels, our Premium Partner 20ème Siècle invites us to discover their new
exhibition that highlights the co-operation they had with the textile
designer Christine Hermans.
A wider reflection opens thus, a reflection on the connections between contemporary design and vintage design, between past and present and between art and functional furniture.
This exhibition will present iconic production pieces of the 20th century revisited by Christine Hermans. A « design » meeting. Objects steeped in history that tell a whole different story: fabric, lace, buttons, feathers,... all those elements feed the imagination of this textile designer, the raw materials of a universe filled with poetry, delicacy and elegance.
When a 50s day bed by Cees Braakman meets that imagination, the result is surprising: a perfect balance between the object, its history and textile creation. It then seems that the object has always patiently waited to wear haute couture to truly exist.
What is better than an intimate loft to welcome this exhibition and reflection on art that is subtly introduced in daily life ? To see and discover: among others, Pierre Guariche, Cees Braakman, Friso Kramer, 50s geniuses & textile creations by Christine Hermans - Silencio Silencio ! Spread the word !
