The Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek has designed the furniture for the children’s workshop: known for his functional eco-furniture, he demonstrates how respect for materials and functional design are values he shares with Horta. We wish to draw the children’s attention to ideas of craft and the bespoke in a world in which the origins of ready-made objects are most often unknown. This particular commission has been made possible thanks to the patronage of Roberto Polo and the support of the Région of Bruxelles-Capitale.
