Arno grew up in a family with parents who like to work with beautiful brands and objects. His father studied at the Royal Academy of Arts Fashion Department, he worked for Bikkembergs and made his own fashion brands, but has also collected tribal arts for more than 20 years. His mother, who worked with his father from the beginning, bought a shoe store in 2010 where they sold brands as Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, Maison Martin Margiela, ... With the interest in beauty he learned from his parents, Arno studied interior design, after learning a lot about materials and with great knowledge of history he designed interiors and opened his own gallery for ethnographic art and design. The collection has come to the idea that there are too few interiors where they no longer have the big and static vases and candlesticks that the people had in big houses over 100 years ago. By focusing on architecture, ancient arts and design, after war buildings, defence buildings (bunkers and fortresses) and tribal arts, he created a collection that became a Classic.     Each piece is unique because it is entirely handcrafted by him. Made of tropical hardwood called Iroko this he discovered after one of his many trips to West Africa interested in voodoo arts. In these strange tribal arts, the wood "Iroko" is used in many objects, according to their culture, the ancestors lives in these trees, and they also call this tree "the king of the forest". Arno also combines this with Belgian Oak, that dried for more than 30 years, wood that was provided for the many furniture makers in Mechelen. By treating these objects through the Yakusugi technique or another mentioned "Shou Sugi Ban" an ancient Japanese technique where the objects are burned to protect the wood from weathering and subsequently fixed to get a patina look as long as possible. This gives each object a unique texture.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia Furniture

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
