Tuur (Dendermonde, 1994)
Hybrid architect, Tuur popped into Bidules after seeing Roger Raveel's retrospective exhibition at BOZAR just across the road. His Selecta mod. Jack (USA), 1960s frames are a total match - and even though they’re his first pair of glasses, he's rooting for a lifetime of companionship.
With a background in architectural studies, he’s often intrigued by objects that combine functionality with aesthetics (that sounds familiar!). In the unlikely scenario that his apartment were on fire, you'd find him running outside with his 'Il Conico' water kettle from the Italian post-modernist architect Aldo Ross! On second thought, it would probably be more useful to extinguish the flames...
He grew up in a small rural village in the Flemish Region - so he’s proud of the life he’s carved out in Brussels. You’re sure to bump into him in RILE the avant-garde book store, or FIRMA, a co-working space he works from for young creatives and designers.
Next time you swing by the store, he also recommends checking out the side entrance of the Ravenstein Gallery to the right of us - it has some beautiful ceiling frescos.
