HANDMADE FURNITURE, LIGHTS AND OBJECTS FOR YOUR HOME AND BEYOND. DESIGNED TO STAND OUT AND TO BLEND IN.
ADVANCEDAESTHETICS was brought into existence as the main brand for our inhouse design collection. I’ve been designing stuff from way back, even when I was still a little kid. Probably influenced by my dad (RIP) who was an electro-mechanical engineer and who was forever making inventions and equations. I may not have inherit his genius brain, but he still gave me two right hands and insight. And if you’re a doer like me, then anything is possible.
After struggeling for many years because of not knowing where to fit in, a lack of the right degrees and not taken seriously by the right people at that time, I got stuck in a social, economical and financial downward spiral which was almost impossible to escape. But I did anyway! In stead of spending the little xtra money we had left at the end of each month to useless things (which I still did, but in controlled small amounts), I started to invest in my future, little by little. An impact driver, a pendulum jigsaw, a sander etc. Anyway, that’s the way the cookie crumbled for my part.
THE PROCESS OF DESIGNING HAS BECOME A SECOND NATURE. THE REAL CHALLENGE LIES IN THE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS OF THE FORM.
Not that I have a high opinion of my designs, on the contrary. I have put myself in this luxury position of designing mostly and only for myself, so I don’t care whether you like it or not. Of course I hope you do, but I don’t let my designs be dictated by the latest trends, rather only by the limits of the material or the building process.
All designs are handmade with lots of passion and dedication in our own workshop. We try to produce as environmental and animal friendly as possible. For instance, we like to work with indigenous FSC wood rather than to use environmentally destructive exotic wood. We also prefer to work with natural oils, paints and varnishes. And we try to make our products for 99%, if not 100% recyclable. I still believe in the power of the individual, and if we all should work in a more conscience way, the world will be a far better place for us, the plants and the animals.
