Axelle Vertommen (1992) is an interior architect and furniture designer from Antwerp. As a freelance furniture designer, she focuses on detailing. Her furniture pieces are characterized by the contrast in colours and materials. She’s inspired by everyday objects and extraordinary architecture from modernism and postmodernism.
