Known as the maestro of minimalism and his belief in Wabi, an ancient Japanese philosophy, Axel Vervoordt design, and antique empire is marked by unique decor that cements an organic approach to design, fusing nature’s elements with respect to its existing environments.
His finesse for earthy hues and soft-toned interiors exude a palpable sense of harmony, combining modern design’s austerity with an acknowledgment of time. Vervoordt’s business now consists of interior design practice, an antiquaire, a private foundation, as well as art galleries in Antwerp and Hong Kong.

Clients may go to him in search of a splendid antique armoire. At the same time, they look for help renovating and furnishing an 18th-century villa. However, the most valuable service they receive is an instruction in his highly evolved yet quite fundamental philosophy of living.
