- Ben Storms: Ben Storms is a Belgian designer who thinks by means of interacting with matter. In his practice, he tends to look at those materials without prejudice, almost uninhibitedly. It enables him to capture a glimpse of the possibilities a material has to offer. By probing it’s boundaries to and beyond that what is expected, he challenges the conventional notions of a material. Instead of being alienated from Belgium’s rich stonemasonry traditions, he infuses it with novel vantage points. The result is the creation of objects that are striking in both form and function.
- Pablo Lhoas: Graduate in architecture in 1989 at the Institut supérieur d’Architecture de l’Etat “La Cambre”, Pablo Lhoas works, since 1992, at Lhoas&Lhoas Architects, a Brussels architecture practice in fields of architecture and design. He participated to the establishment of the formal organization « Open City », meant to make research about the becoming of the city, and to the establishment of the formal organization NeTHca, meant to support architectural research. Since 2016, he is the Dean of the Faculty of Architecture La Cambre-Horta.
