7 Superb Design Projects by 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.

“Axel discussing the Hatcher Cargo with Jacques Chirac, then the Mayor of Paris, at the Grand Palais in 1984”

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. To some, expressing the lofty in the material might seem contradictory, but Vervoordt believes that, as in a Zen koan, the truth can be contained in paradox and ambiguity. Clients may go to him in search of a splendid antique armoire or for help renovating and furnishing an 18th-century villa, but the most valuable service they receive is an instruction in his highly evolved yet quite fundamental philosophy of living.

7 Superb Interior Projects by Axel Vervoordt

 Axel Vervoordt started as a very young collector when he was 14. He was at an exhibition, which has these machines and mobiles by Tinguely. He couldn’t afford it. The same day he found a 16th-century iron chest where one lock moved 8 other locks and this was one-tenth of the price. From then, he really felt some old things were as contemporary as contemporary art. For him, it’s important that an artist opens his eyes in a new way.
