Born in 1965, Hervé Van Der Straeten is an independent designer. He produces one-off pieces and limited series, his collections of jewellery and furniture are designed and made in his own bronze and cabinet-making workshops, and exhibited at his gallery in the Marais area. He is also active in cosmetics and tableware. Amidst the disparity of materials, formal variations, the challenge of volumes and eclectic collaborations, Hervé Van Der Straeten’s work relies on absolute precision and radical freedom of tone. Hybrid, elegant, pure and offset input determines his artistic approach.
