ANTOINE PETERS FOR QUINZE & MILAN x EASTPAK

05/11/2010

“THE WORLD IS FLAT”

During INTERIEUR 2010, the 22nd International Design Biennale in Kortrijk (B), Dutch Fashion designer Antoine Peters presented an interactive installation called ‘The World is Flat’, featuring customised seating objects for QUINZE & MILAN x EASTPAK’s Built to Resi(s)t collection, and a collection of special accessories. For ten days, gallery-goers were invited to deface the sofa’s by coloring right onto them, which begs that classic question from personality quizzes: If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

AboutANTOINE PETERS

Antoine Peters graduated cum laude at the Art Academy in Arnhem as well at the master course Fashion Institute Arnhem and has working working experience at Viktor&Rolf. Known for his A SWEATER FOR THE WORLD! project, a 2-person sweater with the goal to photograph as many ‘different kind of people’ as possible inside it, in a few years the fanatical football player gathered even more reputation with his pop-culture inspired designs and drew attention of the international press. He is covered as one of the world’s hundred most innovative young designers in the ‘100 new fashion designers’ book by Hywel Davies and he proudly designed the volunteer costumes for the recent Arnhem Fashion Biennial.

Peters’ work is known because of his conceptual, layered and innovative style and is praised because if its optimism, playfulness and renewing form of elegance. More serious matter is brought in a light manner, with the arising of a new unbiased perspective as a result. His work brings airiness by means of concept, but also literally in the clothing and installations itself. ANTOINE PETERS stands for ‘One size fits all elegance’. Bringing together the best of ‘casual’ and ‘sophistication’. ANTOINE PETERS wants to spread a smile.

This first range will include special pocket-padded versions of QUINZE & MILAN design classics CLUB SOFA 01 and PRIMARY POUF 02. Various pockets are incorporated onto the seats and provide storage for your books, magazines, reading glasses, laptop, iPod®, headset, remote control… Whatever you can think of can now simply be pocketed in your sofa.
