Valerie Objects

Valerie Objects is an antwerp-based design label initiated by Axel Van den Bossche and art director Veerle Wenes (owner of the Valerie traan Gallery, Antwerp). By allowing designers, architects and artists to translate their signature style into tangible objects, Valerie Objects has become an exceptional project with one clear mission: return aesthetic meaning to the tools and objects that we use every day. These are not hollow words. The project debuted by cracking the hardest nut that few design brands dare to take on: cutlery. maarten baas (nl), koichi futatsumata (jpn), muller van severen (be) and three others have reinterpreted these daily tools and showed that knifes, forks and spoons do not necessarily have to be shaped like classic silverware. After the cutlery, different collaborations with these and other creators followed, such as the award-winning designer chris kabel (nl), the internationally acclaimed robbrecht en daem architecten (be), the surrealist artist d.d. trans (be) and the minimalist textile designers from thealfredcollection (be). Valerie Objects understands the designer’s drive to develop a durable signature style, as well as the consumer’s desire to connect with a patiently selected object. The label stands for unique yet accessible creations, designed for daily use.
