Pierre De Valck (1991), born in Brussels, is a Ghent-based designer with a childhood fascination for archeology and collecting historical artefacts. His furniture attempts to harness the power of ancient geological processes in a contemporary bodice. Modern antiquities that allow the rediscovery of our ancestral past. The first series of modern antiquities is called "pieces with stone" and represents a series of furniture manually encrusted with precious stones and crystals of exceptional historical value. By leaving the minerals untouched, the mere functional is transcended, rendering the pieces both unique and authentic testimonies of our collective memory. From the hills of the Ardens to the mines of Afghanistan - rediscover ancient stories recollecting millions of years of wisdom, as told by these raw mineral jewels.
