Jo De Baerdemaeker receives the first honorary title 'New Flemish Masters in the Fine Arts'
First honorary title ‘New Flemish Masters in the Fine Arts’ for typeface designer Jo De Baerdemaeker. Awarded by the Minister of Culture from Flanders Sven Gatz at the Henry van de Velde Awards in Bozar, January 19, 2017.
Curious to find out how some of the Henry van de Velde Design Solution Award nominations are actually looking (and feeling)? Go and find out in Hands on Design, the 8th design triennial in the Design museum Gent.
The traditional Awards for Lifetime Achievement, Company and Young Talent will stay as they are, as will the Public Prize, but a decade after their introduction the Henry van de Velde Labels are to take on a new meaning.
The Henry van de Velde Awards show and honour on a national and international level the designers, companies, products, projects and services that have a positive impact on the economy and society through design. All of them have a Flemish connection.
