Antwerp Diamond Museum DIVA

Antwerp, Belgium, 2017

A partnership between the Province and the City of Antwerp, DIVA Museam tells the story of the clout Antwerp and Flanders have exercised nationally and internationally down the centuries in the production and assembly of highly accomplished and stylish objects and jewellery. To illustrate this story, Gert Voorjans designed a silverware and ceramics displays based on the Peacock Room, James McNeill Whistler’s 1876 Asia-tinged masterpiece of brilliant blue greens overlaid with gold leaf. Voorjans has deliberately chosen a combination of styles, including chinoiserie, Ottoman and Japanese, emphasizing Antwerp as an international trading hub.
