- Ben Storms: Ben Storms is a Belgian designer who thinks by means of interacting with matter. In his practice, he tends to look at those materials without prejudice, almost uninhibitedly. It enables him to capture a glimpse of the possibilities a material has to offer. By probing it’s boundaries to and beyond that what is expected, he challenges the conventional notions of a material. Instead of being alienated from Belgium’s rich stonemasonry traditions, he infuses it with novel vantage points. The result is the creation of objects that are striking in both form and function.
- Pablo Lhoas: Architect (La Cambre – 1989), Pablo Lhoas has been working with Lhoas&Lhoas Architectes (studio for architecture/design/scenography), since 1992. He teaches project and history (XX century) of architecture since 1995. Since 2016, he is Dean of the Faculté d’Architecture La Cambre Horta. He has always been involved in collective projects related to architectural culture and professions. Among other things, he co-directed the “Livre blanc de l’architecture”; has initiated several exhibitions promoting young French-speaking Belgian architecture “ReNouveaux Plaisris d’Architecture”; he founded and chaired the nonprofit organization, Documentation and Conservation of Modern Heritage (DoCoMoMO).
