Jurgen Bey’s Exhibition “Witness Flat” in Brussels, Belgium

Witness Flat, a Jurgen Bey exhibition in Brussels, Belgium “WITNESS FLAT” From Thursday 12 June to Monday 30 June 2008 in La Galerie de Pierre Bergé & associés Place du Grand Sablon 40 1000 Bruxelles

Slats, felt and capable hands have worked together and shared knowledge to compose a temporary apartment made of slats and a sewing machine. A pile of slats and a coil of felt became a test house. At the request of Pierre Bergé & associés the gallery has been transformed by Jurgen Bey into a witness apartment, as if the visitor would enter a show flat. The studio makkink & bey did this with series of totally new designs, in wool, wood and felt.
