Quentin de Coster has recently completed an installation for the two-star Michelin restaurant L’Air du Temps in Belgium. The designer met star chef Sang-Hoon Degeimbre at a conference in March of 2013. During this event, they presented their work and noted many common points between their respective artistic worlds. A year late, a collaboration was born.
Sang-Hoon Degeimbre’s cooking artistry embodies nature, inspiration that Quentin de Coster incorporated into the design of his permanent installation piece. Titled Lianes, the installation represents an abstract reproduction of the random character of vegetation.
The organic piece of art installs a unique atmosphere between the outdoor and indoor environment. The white polyester rope creates an enchanting atmosphere throughout the space, and helps reduce noise disturbances.
