Danny Venlet was born and raised in Australia. After his education at the Sint Lukas Art Academy in Brussels (Belgium) he switched from home country several times. Between Australia and Belgium, to be more specific. That’s why it should raise no eyebrow when you were told he left remarkable trails in both countries, and found inspiration in both soils.

After a collaboration with Marc Newson, Venlet layed his hand on the design of several hotels and bars in Australia in the 90’s. Giving them a completely new appearance and radiance: the Burdekin Hotels and the Q-bars. From these projects both the ’Q-stool’, the well-known ’Burdekin barstool’ and the ’Burdekin’ table were born.

Since 1998 Danny Venlet, choose Belgium again as his working ground. Antwerp gained the Man-Chi relax center for men, as well as Fragma, a designer / fashion - shop located in the Nationalestraat. His interiors are stylish, playful and practical. Features, which are typical for Venlets style and can be seen as a synonym for what he stands for.
A great brake-through for his fame and reputation on an international scale was the introduction of the ’Easyrider’ (for Bulo). The design won a respectable amount of awards, such as the ’Henri van de Velde-prijs’. It’s a mobile combination between desk and relaxation chair, covering both your working space and leisure.
Other appreciated designs from his hand are:
The ’Man-Chi’ massage chair, the ’Screw’ garden furniture and pick nick set for Coro, the ’Let’s Drop’ sits for MNM, the ’IceCube’ for Extremis, the ’D2V2’ for Dark and of course the floating sofa ’Dish’ for Naked.
