The Brussels Furniture Fair awards

Toon De Somer – Ton sur Tooon divider (design Mathias De Ferm)
Best Of Belgium
It’s astonishing how a single metal element can make a world of difference. How it adds new dimensions to the spatial architecture, multifunctionality and acoustics. The uprights have a rounded, L-shaped design. They offer an asymmetric picture, of open compartments on one side and closed surfaces on the other. Even the space inside the uprights offers a wealth of possibilities.
Saunaco with Cas collection 2.0 (design Studio Segers)
Theuns with Izola
EgoItaliano – Bebop
An archetypical and symbolic model, a metaphor for the (post-)coronavirus era. A re-design of the retro style, with Italian flair. The bi-stretch fabric provides a contemporary twist. The yin yang pouffe and the combination of black and red are a perfect reflection of the current times. Bebop marks the beginning of new ‘roaring twenties’.
Calia with Milla
Kluskens with A-Table (design Studio Segers)
Passe Partout – Tulip (design Axel Enthoven)
Love at first sight
The elegant, slim armrests are open like the petals of a tulip in bloom. It is exceptionally inviting and heart-warming. ‘Come, take a seat.’ The cushions are both playful and comfortable. Take note of the detail in the finish. Tulip is an original, elegant interpretation of the omnipresent organic trend.
Moome with Lala (design Yonoh)
WR Inspired with Mona
Revor – Circular
The time to act is now. The Circular is the perfect solution: a 100% circular pocket spring mattress. Composed of just two circular mono materials: steel and polyester. These can be completely separated and endlessly reused, with no loss of quality. Raw material waste is eliminated. A QR code facilitates the path to the circular future of your mattress.
