BIO
Adriaan Tas (°1991) studied Graphic Design at LUCA School of Arts (Ghent) and Furniture Design at Thomas More (Mechelen) 

In his work the boundaries between these interests tend to fade, often considering the seemingly two-dimensional field of graphic design in a three-dimensional manner (or the other way around: thinking about objects in flat perspectives). The degree to which these phenomenæ are noticeable may vary according to the question at hand, but nevertheless there will always be a great interest to formal tranquility, an overall approach and attention to execution; important requirements in all fields of creative work. 

The objective of his design process is to create things that have a strong relation to its intended user, and preferably one that is more valuable than its mere functional purpose. The exact properties of such an object are difficult to predefine but might best be described as objects with a ‘supernormal’* quality, that feel indisputably familiar but yet have a very unique and specific character.
