Tim Vranken

Tim Vranken is a Belgian furniture designer who focuses on solid, handmade furniture. Throughout his designs the use of pure materials and honest natural processes are paramount. The result is an unconcealed interplay of lines and shapes, without the slightest frills.

Tim’s collections are often characterized by pure, geometrical shapes in which junctions play a vital role or even become the most distinctive feature.

Tim Vranken has an endless love for wood in its pure form. Rather than to polish away inherent rough and uneven parts, he chooses to let the wood reveal this specific imperfect nature in his furniture. The structure of the wood grains ensures a beautiful design, which Tim will always put first. The bluish colour that is typical to many of Tim’s projects, arises from a natural reaction between rust and tannic acid. 

Tim’s aim as a designer is to create a refined piece of furniture so that it does not need anything other than itself to create harmony.

To make sure the furniture meets up to all of his ideas, Tim builds every piece himself.
