Frederik Delbart Design Studio is an independent creative office located in Antwerp and Hasselt, Belgium, active in product design, strategic design management and consultancy.
Inspired by textures and structures, the main purpose of the studio is creating honest and simple objects. By having a critical approach on the way objects are used and look, every step of the “design process” is deeply analysed and regarded with respect for the user, the manufacturer and the editor.
As we live in a critical environmental situation, respect for nature is always present in the choice of materials, the assembly methods and a strict selection of suitable production plants. Passionate by raw and pure materials such as wood, glass, metal, porcelain and paper, the studio tries to find new limits for each by using those materials in a mix of respect for tradition and sense of innovation. Frederik Delbart believes that an open mind mixed with a large cultural background will form the way to a successful product.
In 2018, Frederik Delbart was Awarded as "Designer of the Year" by Interieur Kortrijk, Knack Weekend, LeVif Weekend, Designmuseum Gent and CID Grand Hornu.
