The August table by Serax, designed by Vincent Van Duysen, was originally designed to be used on the terrace of a hotel in Antwerp. The hotel building used to be the monastery of a military hospital, and this is where the inspiration for August came from – the ascetic way of life of monks.
The beautifully minimalistic August collection has been stripped of anything unnecessary, leaving only the essential. Additionally, the products in the August collection are slightly wider and lower, in order to bring additional comfort without compromising on the simplicity of the design.
A vision to which he also stayed true when he was commissioned to convert the monastery of the former military hospital in Antwerp into a hotel.
For the terrace he designed the Outdoor collection, a series of minimalist chairs that effortlessly link the history of the environment to a modern interpretation.
