Book: We are wanderful

Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, Marina Yee, Studio Job, Michaël Verheyden, Bram Boo, Piet Stockmans, Casimir … Each one a famous name. Limburg designers of world renown. Cultuurplatform Design (Province of Limburg) presents a sample of exceptional Limburg design from the last 25 years with the book, We are wanderful

Limburg design has caused a furore over the last quarter of a century and its influence is fascinating to see. For instance, fashion designer Raf Simons‘ impact on the international fashion world; the world-renowned oeuvre of ceramicist Piet Stockmans; the aesthetic brilliance of Michaël Verheyden; the sublime power of Bram Boo and Casimir in hand-crafted design; or the commercial efficacy of Studio Segers. 

Cultuurplatform Design and a group of experts surveyed the recent past with the question of which Limburg designs and designers have influenced the design landscape. That was the initial question. Dieter Rams’ 10 principles of ‘good design’ were used as a guideline to select designers instead of just listing names, realisations and creations. A deliberate choice was made for a limited period: 25 years. The exercise began soon after the closure of the last Limburg mine; no unimportant element in the creative history of the region.
