This piece of ‘Iron Ore’ – one of the first minerals from nature –was a key element of how BRUT worked with Antoine for several months to create bespoke raw textures and earthy finishes.

BODEM

In search for a collective narrative BRUT chose ‘Bodem’ (soil) as theme for their Milano 2019 presentation. To substantiate this inspiration, BRUT studied Teseum, an excavated Roman settlement in the oldest City of Belgium, Tongres.

There, on those accumulating layers of history, generously echoing past presences and forces they also found the colours and rhythms which define the setting.

 
Teseum: Three metres below ground, age-old stones tell the story of the town Tongeren.

“For several months we have been working with Antoine to obtain the true spirit of the excavated Roman settlement through replicating the raw textures and earthy finishes found there.”

 The resulting scenography introduces an atmosphere of contemplation and stillness, of devotion to matter and time. It guides the concentration and gaze of the spectator.

THE HARMONIOUS DETAILS

The collaboration provides architects and interior designers with inspiration on how Antoine’s finishes can add beautiful, natural colour and texture to any project.

The collaboration with BRUT is an intense example of how ANTOINE works. Bespoke products are created in dialogue: a co-creation process during which we learn about their ideas, needs and desires.
