10 ques­tions with Fien and Hannes

Real Living (Australia) - - LOVING -

1. What are the ben­e­fits of work­ing as a duo? Hav­ing the abil­ity to en­ter into a di­a­logue at any given time. 2. What trait do you most ad­mire in each other? Cre­ativ­ity. 3. How do you in­spire each other cre­atively? By liv­ing to­gether. 4. What is your most trea­sured pos­ses­sion? Our chil­dren, although we can’t re­ally claim them as our prop­erty. 5. What do you al­ways need with you in the stu­dio? A pen­cil and pa­per. 6. What mu­sic do you lis­ten to when you work? The lo­cal ra­dio. 7. What part of the de­sign process do you en­joy most? Cre­at­ing 3D rep­re­sen­ta­tions of our ob­jects for the first time. 8. Which of your col­lec­tions are you most proud of? Fu­ture Prim­i­tives. It’s be­come a trans­la­tion of how we would like to en­cour­age the “users” to com­mu­ni­cate with one an­other. We con­sider it to be a po­etic wink. 9. What de­sign­ers do you ad­mire? Ger­man-based in­dus­trial de­signer Kon­stantin Gr­cic. His ap­proach to fur­ni­ture de­sign is dif­fer­ent and in­no­va­tive. The end re­sult may not al­ways align with our vi­sion, but the way he cre­ates is ex­tremely in­ter­est­ing. 10. What’s the best ad­vice you’ve re­ceived? Fien: “Do your thing”, which was ad­vice given to me by my fa­ther.
