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 Belgium, with 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.
