Brussels-based gallery Victor Hunt has earned a reputation as a trailblazer for contemporary design. And rightly so. Its founder, Alexis Ryngaert, likes to say that he was “a kid” when he decided to start promoting the work of young designers and to share his passion for uncompromising, unique, high-quality design.
Koert Vermeulen, from Brussels, entered lighting just as he entered his teenage years. Since then, the founder of ACT Lighting Design has dreamt it up, designed it, built up a relationship with it and caressed it to tell stories.
"I like the personality of the Belgians. They're deeply eccentric, which is something that comes across in their design - terrific." Miranda Richardson
