Le Bureau d'homme

AD Intérieurs 2016, La Monnaie, Paris

In 2016, Gert Voorjans was invited to participate in the AD Intérieurs exhibition at La Monnaie de Paris.

For the occasion, 10 leading interior designers were asked by the prestigious interior design magazine to stage works of art, precious objects and curiosities in a living space. 

Gert Voorjans created a ‘bureau d’homme’, suggesting a dreamy journey from Tibet to Paris via Venice. The selection of furniture and objects symbolize each stage of the odyssey. But how to awaken Venetian antiques, Art Deco or 18th century French pieces? For Voorjans, the answer lies in colour.

The violet coloured walls, red fitted sisal carpet and green mirrored ceiling electrify the room, defining an intense and concentrated universe of nomadic elegance.
