During Design September, Transnatural presents a first time exhibition ‘Dutch Reflections’ in Belgium with its art and design collection at the new concept store Living Room - design & eatery – in the European quarter of Brussels. The showcase represents, amongst others, handmade oxidized mirrors, lamps with embedded photo luminescent pigments and seats made of foam wood from bio resin and waste.
Transnatural is a Dutch label, launched in 2012, that offers a rare collection in which nature & technology come together. Art, interior and outdoor design are part of the collection, and all have an exceptional aesthetic. Innovative material concepts are often a starting point for new projects. The designers’ production methods pay close attention to new, smart, alternative energy and material resources. Transnatural explores ways how to (re-) design our living spaces so that humans, nature and technology can enrich and feed each other.
After showcasing at the Salone del Mobile in Milan last April, Transnatural is now having its premier exhibition ‘Dutch Reflections’ in Belgium during Design September Brussels at the Living Room – design & eatery, a new concept store in the European quarter of Brussels. This new venue offers a unique experience by mixing its design showroom with an organic restaurant in a homey atmosphere. You can feel at ease while having a coffee on one of the couches, or enjoying daily fresh dishes made by foodies Delphine and Mariko. The store also acts as a gallery to showcase the work of new young design talent.
All products in the collection are established by and with the collaboration of artists and designers, such as Gionatto Gatto, Mike Thompson, Lex Pott, David Derksen, Merel Karhof, Arnout Meijer, Jolan van der Wiel, Marjan van Aubel, James Shaw, Tim van Cromvoirt and Maurizio Montalti.
As ‘arts & crafts’ is the main theme of this year’s 10th edition of Design September, this label with handmade products matches perfectly with it.
Exhibition ‘Dutch Reflections’ with free access as from September 10th till September 30th. Open Monday to Friday from 08:00-18:00 and Saturdays from 10:00-18:00 at Living Room, Place Jean Rey 8 - 1040 Brussels (across Aloft Hotel – metro Schumann).
Living Room is the first outlet in Belgium where the Transnatural label will be for sale.
As from October 2015 distribution in Belgium will be set up by Belgian agent Margot Muys in various high level design shops, galleries and architect studios.
