We forecast a strong future for happy colors in interiors, counterbalancing the negative emotions associated with the pandemic, and bringing happy feelings into interiors. As three art galleries in Belgium showcase, this can be achieved in minimalistic or bolder ways.
First up is the Valerie Traan gallery in Antwerp, presenting furniture design by Muller Van Severen. The Belgian design duo Fien Muller and Hannes Van Severen established their brand in 2011. She is a photographer, and he is a sculptor, yet have managed to launch a furniture line which is exceptionally balanced and sculpturally interesting.
The next stop in Antwerp is the Tim van Laere Gallery designed by Brussels-based architects firm KGDVS. The building features five blocks made from concrete, cast in a lighter pastel hue, with a single pink door.
The last stop is the coastal town of Knokke, home base to The Cappelleschi Gallery. They collaborated for their facade with Spanish urban artist Antonyo Marest. We love the addition of the giant ice pop.
