Maarten De Ceulaer was born in Belgium in 1983. He studied Interior Design at the Sint-Lukas Hogeschool in Brussels, where he graduated in 2005. Attracted by conceptual and narrative design, he continued his studies at the Design Academy Eindhoven. He uses his work to tell stories, to stir people\'s emotions, to inspire their imagination and to make them wonder. He continuously explores new materials and investigates in production techniques and crafts. The emotional aspect of objects is equally important as the functional, and he has a remarkable attention for detail. He is known for using materials in unconventional ways, and the end result never ceases to surprise us.
