axel vervoordt : : wabi inspirations

In Wabi Inspirations (Flammarion), Belgium Antiquarian, Art Dealer, and Interior Designer, Axel Vervoordt shares with us in this book, his latest inspiration based on the Eastern aesthetic, Wabi dating back to the 12th Century. 

Wabi advocated simplicity and humility, the rejection of all that is superfluous or artificial.  Through extraordinary photgraphs from Japan and Korea to Belgium and Switzerland, Vervoordt invites us to explore the elements that inspire him: natural materials and time-worn objects that evoke the essence of Wabi.  Today, together with the Japanese architect Tatsuro Miki, Vervoordt carries the principles of Wabi into his remarkable interiors. ~via rizzoli
