The New Harvest. Well seasoned. presents a selection of pieces by a group of talented, up and coming designers, who are characterised by their mutual diversity. It is a rich amalgamation of influences and visions on a platform with a continuously changing background. The exhibition is being supplemented by a series of related activities in the various rooms of the Design Flanders Gallery.
Enjoyed a lot designing those small elements into one great gesture!
Thank you Gert Luts from n12 for the craftsmanship, Leen De Brabandere for assisting on the drawings, and Chloe De Corte from n12 for the nice pictures.
These labels and awards, issued since 21 years, have become an important reference for the Belgian and international design world. They will be exhibited in BOZAR, from the 10th of January until the 15th of February 2015.
STOOL was designed for the artist loges in arts centre De Singel in Antwerp.
STOOL is now distributed by Drisag.
Caroline Voet was part of the team that studied the different project entries, and made the selection. She wrote the text 'Small architectural situations. Living (together) between type and topos.'
The other members of the editorial board are François Thiry, Katrien Embrechts, Oswald Devisch, Asli Cicek and Christoph Grafe.
For this occasion, a lot of research was done to develop new cabinets and a table. The space will be inaugurated end of the year!
Caroline Voet regularly organises tours and workshops at Roosenberg Abbey in Waasmunster, one of Van der Laan's masterpieces.
Thank you Yannick de Spiegeleir from Het Laatste Nieuws for the great interview in Roosenberg Abbey.

Caroline Voet was selected during the Spring Selections 2014, in the category 'Furniture and Interior Objects'.
'Architectural modernity through religious traditions. The peculiar blend in Dom Hans van der Laan’s “Architectonic Space”.'
Atomium, 18.02.2014 - 15.06.2014
Caroline Voet is selected for the Mobilia exhibition.
The forthcoming exhibition “MOBILIA”, at the Atomium in Brussels focuses on the talent of architects whose work, since the late nineteenth century, has evolved beyond the design of buildings, to the creation of furniture and objects.
Using the prism of an architect / a piece of furniture / a building MOBILIA displays serials, products as well as unique pieces.
More than 25 profiles (from the Art Nouveau architect through the modernist and the post-modern till the contemporary architects) are presented.
Exhibition from the 21th of January to the 1st of March 2014.
Location: Lokettenzaal Vlaams Parlement, Brussel
Organisation: Agentschap Ondernemen, Design Vlaanderen and the OVAM.
Caroline Voet and forma are selected to realise the scenography.
It is a wonderful challenge to work in the 'lokettenzaal' of the Flemish Parliament in Brussels. This rational and repetitive structure clad with luscious materials was realised by modernist architect Victor Bourgeois (1897-1962) between 1937 and 1941.
As an answer to this hall, Voet and forma developed an inverted column, set in a modular lozenge pattern, a platform for the awarded projects.
The artist-architect Pieter Vandendorpe, R U I M T E R U I S, took the structure and resliced it in 45° angles according to the different prominent rhythms, investigating new perspectives.
On the 26th of August 2013, the public defence of Caroline Voet's PhD 'Between the Lines and its margins. Spatial Systematics in the work of Dom Hans van der Laan (1904-1991)' took place in the auditorium of the Arenbergkasteel (Arenberg Castle) of the K.U.Leuven.
She was awarded the title of Doctor in the Engineering Sciences.
This PhD-project was funded and hosted by St. Lucas School of Architecture, campus LUCA (Brussels-Ghent).
prof. dr. Luc Verpoest (KULeuven) and prof. dr. Yves Schoonjans (Luca Ghent-Brussels).
Members of the jury are:
prof. dr. Hilde Heynen (KULeuven), prof. dr. Krista De Jonge (KULeuven), prof. dr. Bart Verschaffel (Ghent University), prof. dr. Raoul Bauer (Luca Ghent-Brussels), prof. dr. Jan De Maeyer (KADOC) and prof. dr. Dirk Vandermeulen (KULeuven).
