Maarten De Ceulaer (1983) is a Brussels-based designer. After graduating at the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven he gained immediate international attention with his iconic graduation project ‘Pile Of Suitcases’, which evolved into an extensive collection of high-end leather-covered furniture pieces for the renowned Milanese gallery Nilufar, using the archetype of a suitcase as a building block.
This remained De Ceulaer’s leitmotiv: instead of designing single items, he often prefers to unfold an entire design collection by elaborating on one concept or material.
He has previously worked with renowned international galleries and brands such as Nilufar (Milan), Victor Hunt (Brussels), CC Tapis (IT), Vibia (IT), Fendi (IT), Casamania (IT) and others.
_Every collection encompasses a poetic universe where the mind can wander.
