Belgian antiques dealer and decorator Axel Vervoordt is known for mixing antiques with contemporary art and designing using the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi. This philosophy embraces humility at its core; It can be explained as a way of saying “thank you” to nature.
Etre heureux en rendant heureux
This adage – which translates roughly as finding happiness through creating happiness – is Axel Vervoordt’s favourite.
It expresses his commitment to inspire artists and audiences through discovering and transmitting the beautiful, with a deep respect for everything that is authentic.
