Frans Van Praet - De Jaarringen

Publisher Ludion

ISBN 9789491819780

Idea Code 19054

Designer Frans L. Van Praet’s oeuvre evokes a fascinating ambiguity where narrative exuberance goes hand in hand with the less-is-more austerity of minimalism. His work falls under a particularly Flemish brand of surrealism that plays with both words and images, rooted in a folkloric imagination. These self-imposed limits have served as a guiding principle for the design of everyday items, allowing his unusual or quirky creations to form a synthesis of the utilitarian and the potential of the material. The complexity of Van Praet’s body of work is extensively presented in this large monograph, from interior design and furniture making, to his forays into installation art and architecture.
