Neue Luxury - - News -

For 40 years, the canals be­tween na­ture, beauty and en­vi­ron­ment have been Vervoordt’s call­ing card. The pi­o­neer­ing Bel­gian in­te­rior de­signer and an­ti­quar­ian is cur­rently trans­form­ing a for­mer dis­tillery into a hy­brid hub of lifestyle, work, na­ture and cul­ture, dubbed Kanaal: a city in the coun­try. Last year he teamed up with ar­chi­tec­ture and ex­hi­bi­tions de­sign guru Daniela Ferretti for the sec­ond time to cu­rate Pro­por­tio at Venice’s Palazzo For­tuny, where Ferretti is di­rec­tor. The avant-garde project ex­plored par­al­lels in art, medicine, sci­ence, eco­nom­ics, ar­chi­tec­ture and mu­sic, and in­cluded a sound-based col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Ma­rina Abramovic and sci-fi writer Kim Stan­ley Robin­son.
