Adrien Meira, CLUB COLLECTIBLE ambassadors
15 May 2021
CLUB COLLECTIBLE: What have you been up to recently? Which recent project would you like to draw attention to?
Adrien Meira: The first project completed in 2019 marked the start of my agency. It consisted in a penthouse renovation in Brussels for an art collector, directly linked to my professional background. The project started around the pre-existing art collection that needed to be showcased, then the architecture and design pieces were brought in to complement it. It is precisely the dialogue between these diversified types of creation that I find exciting.
“Paris, Brussels and Rotterdam are particularly inspiring and dynamic poles of contemporary creation, their geographical proximity along with their distinctive character makes them a perfect combination.”
CC: Tell us about a collectible designer you would love to collaborate with or have enjoyed collaborating with on a past project.
AM: Some of the most meaningful memories involve my collaboration with the MANIERA gallery which does remarkable work and represents architects and designers whose work I greatly admire. I had the great opportunity of placing pieces from renowned architects such as Anne Holtrop and Bijoy Jain in one of my projects. I still vividly remember Anne Holtrop’s commitment towards reworking the proportions of a travertine table so that it could fit into the project. I have also collaborated on the same project with Paulin Paulin Paulin, who custom-made a sofa of over three meters in length, which fit into the living room, following its rounded contours.
CC: What makes Paris, Brussels and Rotterdam exciting places for contemporary collectible design and (interior) architecture?
AM: Paris, Brussels and Rotterdam are particularly inspiring and dynamic poles of contemporary creation, their geographical proximity along with their distinctive character makes them a perfect combination. I personally work between Paris and Brussels. Each of these two unique cities has been a place of particularly enriching encounters, and as a result, I am a consequence of this mixture.
CC: What do you think CLUB COLLECTIBLE could bring to the Brussels design scene?
AM: I am very enthusiastic about the creation of the COLLECTIBLE CLUB, as it will enrich my encounters, inspirations and, hopefully, future collaborations..
