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.”
Pieter is a designer and visual artist living and working in Antwerp. In 2012 he founded his own studio, specialised in lettering, calligraphy and murals. His process combines analog and digital techniques, while always trying to let the human touch shine through. His portfolio ranges from visual identities and book covers over packaging to art installations and tattoos. Next to that Pieter teaches through lectures and workshops. To connect with letterheads around the world he founded Antwerp Type Society, and he is one half of the Analphabetics collective.
Studio M specializes in art direction, graphic design and branding and offers a 360° approach to print, video, and creative consulting.
