Henry van de Velde, cornerstone of the HERITAGE HOUSE tableware collection.

About a week ago, the winners of the prestigious Henry van de Velde awards were announced. For those who are less familiair with the concept, these are the design awards in Belgiumwith a strong global resonance.

As we Belgians are known for our non chauvinistic attitude, these awards are meaningful, offering recognition and stimulating (inter)national breakthroughs. 
An excellent opportunity for us to highlight the previous Henry van de Velde winners in our collection packed with objects, tastes & stories from Belgium's most remarkable food designers. We have 5 of them and a surprisingly 6th, that kind of brings things full circle.
