Unknown work by Henry van de Velde in Westende, Belgium, 1 July 2006


In villa "Les Zéphyrs" in Westende-Bad an Art Nouveau ensemble from 1898 recently was identified as the work of Henry van de Velde's early period. The ensemble consists of a wooden panel, two fixed buffets and a copper mantelpiece. Lieven Daenens, director of the Design museum in Gent, identified the objects after comparing with similar works of Van de Velde. The identification was later confirmed by Antje Neumann, a researcher in the project "Werkverzeichnis Henry van de Velde" in Weimar, Germany. Villa ”Les Zéphyrs” was bought by the commune of Middelkerke in 1972 and is currently being restored and decorated as the 1930's holiday house of Dr Muyshondt from Gent. The design of the villa dates back to a concept from 1910 by the architect Oscar van de Voorde who designed it for the world exhibition in Brussels 1910. The villa will open to the public on 1st of July 2006.

Kruununhaka's Stairwells


The Helsinki City Planning Department recently published an inventory of Kruununhaka's stairwells. They are an important part of Helsinki's cultural heritage and offer valuable examples of well-preserved interior spaces. Many of Kruununhaka's stairwells were designed by the most outstanding architects of the time. As was the custom, stairwells were used to convey a sense of impressiveness and elegance. Fortunately a significant legacy of handicrafts has been preserved in the stairwells' masonry vaults and decorative paintings.

Colours and shapes - the Ecole de Nancy’s 18thC heritage – Exhibition at the Ecole de Nancy Museum : 16 September - 31 December 2005


This Exhibition has been organised by the Ecole de Nancy Museum as part of the “Nancy 2005 - The Age of Enlightenment” celebrations. While the city of Nancy took advantage of the occasion to restore one of the most magnificent 18thC squares in the world to mount a number of events presenting a vast panorama of the Age of Enlightenment, the Ecole de Nancy Museum decided to take a closer look at a particular, little discussed aspect of the works by artists in the School: their 18thC heritage. It was the 18thC Place Stanislas, symbol of Nancy up to the creation of their famous 1900s naturalist style, that originally inspired the objects by Gallé, Daum, and others. Fully aware of their stylistic influences, and of the risk of creating a mere pastiche that would debase the work of the earlier period, the Nancy artists nevertheless succeeded in finding a primary source of inspiration in the 18thC, and using it to create an innovative, lively and resolutely modern style.
