One of the reasons why Brussels based designers Anne Masson and Eric Chevalier always use fabric, is the intimate character of it: cloth and wool are domestic elements, they feel familiar. You also find these elements -intimacy and domesticity- in their interior. "But that doesn't mean that we set out to create a particular atmosphere or style in our house, nothing here is intentional. There is no overall plan, and the objects change regularly, depending on our needs at that particular moment."
The kitchen used to be downstairs, but now it's upstairs, next to
the living space, which we change around to fit with whatever is going
on there. The ground floor is set aside for our studio. We also make a
habit of bringing into the house fabrics and fabric objects we have
made: we like to test prototypes and experiment a little.
