Mathias De Ferm
Mathias De Ferm (1985) is a product and furniture designer from Antwerp, Belgium. Collaborating with renowned international brands, his work includes furniture, products, lighting and micro-architecture. His work is characterized by a strong belief in the social relevance of design. A dining table, for instance, is not limited to its practical qualities. It forms the social centerpiece of a home: a place where people gather to eat, drink and talk with each other. This idea led to a serene yet warmhearted aesthetic and the frequent use of durable materials.
By creating extensive product and furniture series, Mathias developed a holistic design approach. Each collection has a well thought out function that results in a singular design personality.
Mathias studied product development at AP Antwerpen and furniture design at Thomas More Mechelen. Eager to learn more about materials and techniques, he earned additional degrees in metalwork and carpentry.
In 2010, he started working as an independent designer for a variety of clients: furniture collections, innovative barbecues, custom-made outdoor buildings, cook- and tableware… Several of these projects were awarded at leading design competitions. In addition, Mathias designed a number of residential and commercial interiors.
Jeffrey Huyghe graduated as an industrial product designer at Howest, Kortrijk. With a heart for engineering, Jeffrey likes to experiment with geometrical shapes and dynamic interactions. This translates in an interesting tension where minimalism and materialisation meet state-of-the-art engineering.
Examples are multi-awarded architectural lighting designs like Semih (2016) and Marbul (2018) where complex hidden rotational systems are disguised as pure designs. Recently he started his own studio where beyond lighting, he can push further the boundaries of the interaction between materials and mechanics.

She works on a range of projects for museums and clients as the Flemish Architecture Institute VAi and the Arts Centre deSingel in Antwerp (B). Next to these public interiors she designs characteristic furniture, inspired by the poetry of movement and the essence of daily use. She mostly works with wood and metal details. Recently several of these tactile and sensual objects started having a life outside their original habitat, being appreciated for their timeless and pure style.

His design studio was launched in 2011 and is active in different domains such as product design, strategic design management and consultancy.

Respect for nature is always present in the choice of materials, the assembly methods and a strict selection of suitable production plants. Passionate by raw and pure materials such as wood, glass, metal, porcelain and paper, Frederik tries to find new limits for each by using those materials in a mix of respect for tradition and sense of innovation. The range of objects is unlimited as it goes from lights, furniture, accessories to tableware and complete lighting installations. Frederik is passionate about light and has an extended experience in both the architectural vision as the technical side of lighting.
