STUDIO HELDER is an Antwerp-based design platform, founded by Diana Keller and Brecht Baert in 2010.
We’ve designed interiors for private housing, showrooms and workspaces, we give advice, organise workshops and host exhibitions and events.
In our store we show objects we designed ourselves as well as furniture, jewelry, accessories and other items made by upcoming, talented artists from all over the world.
In everything we do, as diverse as our occupations are, some things are always present:
We care about subtlety and creativity. We’re endlessly fascinated by the little nuances and changes that turn something ordinary into an inspiring and beautiful object.
To quote the brilliant philosopher ‘Lorax’ from Dr. Seuss: “It’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become.”
Studio M specializes in art direction, graphic design and branding and offers a 360° approach to print, video, and creative consulting.

Louise Mertens runs an art studio based in Antwerp, Belgium.
Her work as an art director became a trademark of herself. The studio became a place where her personal artwork and carefully selected client work come together.
Her visual world combines the admiration for human forms & futurism with purity, sophistication and the incomprehensible.
Her eye for aesthetics leads to international client projects ranging from concepts, campaign visuals & art direction to designing identities, covers & many more.
