Cobra studios is a Brussels based creative studio founded by Kenny Decommer and Hugues Delaunay. Cobra studios is created to counterbalance the current furniture and design scene. Based on a post-modernistic aesthetic, the goal is to collide geometrical shapes in order to create new usable volumetrics. Transparency, translucency and opacity are countered to create sculptural pieces. Contradiction is key, the world is boring, let’s indulge the pieces with colour. Hard shapes need to collide with soft touches. The pieces need to be minimalistic yet very decorative. Every piece needs to withstand time and art movements. Cobra Studios tends towards creating a world of its own, a certain form of light living, naïve but such fun.
Kenny Decommer studied architecture and engineering at the university of Ghent. After graduating, he moved to Paris to get in touch with the creative scene. After several years of working as an architect, he returned to Brussels with the ambition to create and design pieces, no matter what they were.
Hugues Delaunay lives between Brussels and Paris, where he studied at the school of fine arts. Specialised in visual identity, visual merchandising and set design, he worked for several luxury fashion brands like Paul Smith, Chloé or Ralph Lauren. Together they created Cobra Studios.
