The poster image for the Ado Chale exhibition that opens on the 18th August in Bozar, Brussels, emanates a sense of mystique. The image, of various circular shapes in natural materials, grace the paper, along with the terms: Alchemist. Artisan. Designer. The post-war Belgian designer is a mineralogist and a blacksmith, who approaches furniture as if it was art. Chale can be best described as a curious dreamer. On show will be a selection of objects and furniture, such as his Goutte d’eau bronze table, his mosaics of bone, pepper corns and mother-of-pearl, and tables made of petrified trees. A touching homage to the 89-year-old artist, and a taster of Brussels Design Weekend, which kicks off in September.
