For the fifteenth consecutive edition, Biennale Interieur and Knack Weekend / Le Vif Weekend announce the Designer of the Year. This year, the jury has chosen Livable® founder Sep Verboom (°1990) as the winner.
In this unconventional year, the jury honours a designer who is not nearly a typical representation of the profession as the public understands it. It is not so much the end result which defines his work, rather than the context in which it takes place. “Taking just the look or the saleability of a design into account is no longer of this time,” says the young Ghent-based designer. “This process results from a specific question or need. We still have a long way to go in terms of durable design. My aim is to offer an alternative approach.”
