Painter, sculptor, musician, interior designer, furniture designer, shoe designer, yacht designer and even designer of a car prototype for Lamborghini, Arne Quinze is a designer with a thousand facets. His dynamism is only equalled by his openness of mind.

Founder of the Quinze & Milan agency in Courtrai, this Flemish autodidact manages dozens of projects all over the world, from Berlin to New York, Moscow and Nigeria. Arne Quinze likes taking risks and advancing into unknown territory. In his world, limits only exist to be exceeded. Daring is the key to success. This impassioned designer responded enthusiastically to this new initiative:was the first designer to occupy the Pierre Bergé & associés gallery from 17th to 30th April 2008. In a sound-filled atmosphere that sets the tone of the exhibition, people were able to buy unique pieces specially produced for the gallery: a set composed of a polyurethane made-to-measure table and five chairs, a series of six china vases in sensual forms, as well as paintings. Oriented towards a futuristic world, the ‘Walking-Light Houses’ based on science fiction, and the famous ‘stilthouses’, or the brightly coloured houses of the future, rised from the ground with special forms that are somewhere between architecture and design In total, some twenty unique pieces created by Arne Quinze were for sale during this first exhibition.

About Arne Quinze

Arne Quinze is born in 1971 in Belgium but lives and works in Miami (US) and Sint-Martens-Latem (Belgium). In the eighties he started out as a graffiti artist although he didn’t finish an official art eduction.  The urge to express himself artistically and to strive for this dates from this period. Quinze creates large and small sculptures, drawings, paintings and large scaled. Smaller works, sketches and drawings are the basis and research for his large installations. In searching himself and optimizing every new idea Quinze is entirely absorbed in his world and creations. Recurring fundamentals in Quinze’s oeuvre are the use of multiple types of wood even refuse wood, electrical colours in fluorescent paint (yellow, orange, black) and themes referring to social interaction, communication, rhythms and the interplay of lines.
