Born January 29th 1964, Belgium
Self taught furniture and interior designer
As a self taught designer, Filip Janssens first started designing ‘made to measure’- furniture for his own home in 2003.
In 2008 he opened his own design studio in order to develop his personal approach to product and furniture design and art projects.
Designing ‘made to measure’ furniture is his core business.
Next to that he started to collaborate with design editors like Serax, Per Use, and recently Recor Home.
Filip Janssens also brings out his designs himself under Filip Janssens Design like the Flex collection and the reclaimed Lunair lights which were a Henry Van De Velde Award Winner 2020.
Filip Janssens: “Designing is like painting an abstract geometric artwork but in 3D. Lines become dimensions and volumes. I’m testing all possibilities with modular volumes: using a volume inside another volume, asymmetry, working in different layers or depths, open and closed volumes, working only with the outline of the volume, etc..”.
