Tim Vranken

 

 

For Paris Design Week 2022, BOOM ROOM unveiled a meticulously curated selection of works by creative artists, showcasing a play with organic forms, materials, and colours; a contemporary dive into a sense of unrestricted creativity by pushing the limits of technique and design.

 

The works of Tim Vranken, a Belgian furniture designer, are an unconcealed interplay of lines and shapes without the slightest frills. Throughout his designs, pure materials and natural processes are paramount. Pure, geometrical shapes define the works of Vranken. His aim as a designer is to create a refined piece of furniture so that it does not need anything other than itself to create harmony.

 

Tim's deep passion for wood in its pure form shows in his collections. Rather than polishing the inherent rough and uneven parts, he allows the wood to reveal this specific imperfect nature in his furniture. He prioritises attractive design, ensured by the structure of the wood. Rust and tannic acid naturally react to provide the bluish colour that is common in many of his creations. He creates each piece of furniture himself to ensure that it complies with all of his ideas.
