The bizarre, rich, and deep spaces that define the headquarters for the fashion designer Dries Van Noten, were conceived of inside-out. The surreal and seemingly patchwork figures, furnishings, fixtures and installations were conceived of as accents that set the tone for the entire building and the exterior.
In essence this project was about assembling differences into unified wholes. Collaging was used as a tool to prompt the strange forms and discover unique juxtapositions of form, texture, and color - highlighting the wonderfully rich patterns of the Dries Van Noten collections.
