Dining room table with an edgy side, designed and handmade by Belgian designer Ruben Deriemaeker.
‘DERI3’ is actually short for Ruben Deriemaeker – an appropriate moniker, since it contains the old-fashioned spelling for “maker.” Ruben grew up in a neighbourhood in Antwerp well-known for its high-rise designed by architect Renaat Braem and was fortunate to find a workspace in that same inspiring neighbourhood.
Ruben has always known that he wanted to become a designer. He envisions, designs and makes furniture, translating his own vision into tangible objects. Working with the materials nature provides us with is one of his greatest ambitions. Wood being his biggest love, because of its brutal honesty. It symbolizes the woods where he played when he was a kid. And because he values these woods, he believes in creating with as little waste as possible.
