BIOGRAPHY FILIP JANSSENS
Born January 29th 1964
Self taught furniture and interior designer
As a self taught designer, Filip Janssens first started designing ‘made to measure’- furniture for his own home.
In 2007 he opened his own design studio in order to develop his personal approach to product and furniture design and art projects.
Designing unique ‘made to measure’- projects with the characteristic Filip Janssens signature is his core business.
Next to that he started to collaborate with design editors like Serax on small furniture collections.
Filip Janssens: “Designing is like painting an abstract geometric artwork but in 3D. Lines become dimensions and volumes. I’m testing all possibilities with modular volumes: using a volume inside another volume, asymmetry, working in different layers or depths, open and closed volumes, working only with the outline of the volume, etc..”.
