Furniture From Suitcase
The collection was inspired by the designer’s great passion for travelling and exploring the world. The nostalgic daydreams one experiences when recalling great journeys of the past, the excitement one feels while packing for a new adventure, those are the emotions that Maarten wants to arouse.
Impressive towers and asymmetric compositions are made by piling up suitcases and briefcases in precious leathers created by Maarten De Ceulaer in a close collaboration with one of the most renowned leather artisans in Belgium, Ralph Baggaley. The craftsmanship and detailing are simply sublime and calls for instant admiration. These cabinets are rich in poetry, and consist of different volumes, which can easily be dismantled, separately transported or reconfigured if desired.
