FREDERIK DELBART AWARDED BELGIAN DESIGNER OF THE YEAR.
The 'Designer of the Year' award is an initiative by the Biennale Interieur npo and the magazines Knack Weekend and Le Vif Weekend. The award is also supported by the Design Museum Gent, Centre d'innovation et de design au Grand-Hornu and Bozar.
For the thirteenth time in a row, a Belgian designer is crowned designer of the year.
Frederik Delbart, a furniture and product developer pur sang, is this year’s laureate. The 30-year-old designer tries to explore all aspects of design: from the early design to strategic thinking. His designer language also shows an unlikely authenticity. He works for companies such as Recor Home, Quincalux, Aluci, Moome, Ars Fabricandi, Van Den Weghe Items and Per / Use.
