TIPS FROM STUDIO PEPE

Last Thursday, the new Avantgarde department at Co van der Horst was opened in collaboration with Studiopepe. LXRY talked to the ladies of Studiopepe, the legendary design duo of the moment.

“We like to work together, so you mix ideas. By discussing and always looking for new paths. Because we both have our own vision, we always have to look for a solution and do something new. Over the years there have been several trends in style. Currently it is not about style, but about the honesty of a project. It is the trend of feeling that you are not pretending to be someone else. It is about using materials in an honest way. It doesn't matter if it's synthetic or natural, but you don't pretend it's anything else. You want to show what you use. You are yourself. That is really what we would like to pass on to others. Be yourself and discover yourself, because sometimes you don't know who you are. We are also still on the way, haha.”

TIPS

“Try to think in a different way. Like a genius. For us, that is someone who has a barrier or problem, but transforms it into a new possibility. And enjoy your free time too. That's a luxury.

When you are on your bike or in the shower, there is room for inspiration.”

“We are now busy with the Salone del Mobile. This year it is extra important for us, because we can design a secret club. It will be something completely new…”
