Famous for the production of diamonds, Antwerp is the second-largest city in Belgium and one of the most common excursions from Brussels. Antwerp is almost like a mecca for both beautiful architecture and soul-stirring luxury interior design. With famous designers such as Vincent Van Duysen and Axel Vervoordt, Antwerp is surely a city to keep an eye on when it comes to interior design! Have a look!

#2 – Andy Kerstens
Kerstens was founded in 2015 and is based in Antwerp by Andy Kerstens. Kerstens is a multidisciplinary design studio with a clear vision of architecture, interior design and furniture design. The focus is on total projects in which an affinity for craftsmanship, detail and atmosphere is essential. This applies both to the residential market and to catering and retail projects. They strive for simplicity, a timeless, minimal design combined with rich, natural materials for a warm and sober look.
#3 – Axel Vervoordt
Axel Vervoordt has earned renown as a collector, antiquarian, interior designer and, most recently, curator. He counts among his clientele royalty, rock stars, financiers, tech tycoons and artists. Yet he has little interest in “style,” at least as it is currently defined, because essentially, Vervoordt is a metaphysician. Inquiries into the nature of being and concepts of time and space are what most compel him. He conveys his views through his inspired arrangements of objects and interiors.

#10 – Vincent Van Duysen
Vincent Van Duysen got his start as an assistant to Aldo Cibic in the legendary Milan studio of Ettore Sottsass. In 1990, he went on to establish his own studio in Antwerp, Belgium. He comes from the long and rarefied line of architects who refuse to concentrate only on the shell and also project a sense of living that is as much inside as outside. Van Duysen calls it the “art of living” and he’s done much to refine that art in industrial design, having created everything from slender outdoor furniture and earthenware containers to Swarovski crystal chandeliers.
