“André Verroken (°1939) is an idiosyncratic figure in the world of furniture design. In the 1960s his highly individualistic vision of furniture as an object was sometimes an obstacle to his cooperation with the industry.Verroken considers the social and aesthetic aspect of a piece of furniture as important as its functionality. He adds a cultural dimension to the material character of his designs. Consequently he put much thought into developing a style of his own before eventually enriching the world with an artistic idiom that exudes warmth and sobriety and blurs the border between furniture and work of art. Though little known among the general public, Verroken influenced generations of furniture designers with his poetry. Thanks to this beautiful publication, which covers the Belgian furniture designer’s complete oeuvre, he will continue to do so.”
