Mattice Boets, an award-winning Belgian designer, gracefully weaves art and design through the use of state-of-the-art technology. Once extending his expertise to international clients across London, New York, and Paris, Mattice is now steering his creativity in a new direction. Having sharpened his skills through collaborations with luminary figures like Ross Lovegrove and Daniel Widrig, Mattice has transformed his focus into a singular vision – the creation of his own signature brand, 'Mattice Boets'.
Mattice Boets is not merely a brand; it's an embodiment of Mattice's unique design philosophy, 'natural intelligence’. This concept blends the essence of the natural world with advanced technology, creating a harmonious balance between nature and design. Each piece is crafted to perfection, in which even the smallest detail isn't spared meticulous attention and refinement. The creations are more than just products; they are functional works of art, born from cutting-edge technology paired with artistic expression. These exquisite pieces have found their homes in select upscale design boutiques across the globe.
The philosophy of 'natural intelligence' transcends the physical aspects of the creations. It signifies a devotion to refining each design to its inherent essence, uncovering its inevitable form. Sculpted through state-of-the-art technologies, these creations push the boundaries of the known and venture towards the truly significant. This approach positions Mattice Boets at the vanguard of the next generation of designers, pioneering a new paradigm in design.
Born in Belgium, Mattice holds a Master of Architecture from the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, and a bachelor’s degree in industrial product design, magna cum laude, from the University of Applied Sciences Howest, Belgium.
