Interview with Gunther Pelgrims at Tuesday 28th of April 2020
Gunther Pelgrims
FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
GP: I don't really have a background or training as a designer. Rather it is something that was created by passion and my profession as a furniture / cabinet maker.

FS: What is "design" for you?
GP: Design for me is something in which you can generate a certain emotion in people with an object.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
GP: furniture, accessories and lighting

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
GP: A table

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
GP: wood and upholstery

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
GP: when I'm traveling, and during quiet times of the day.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
GP: I always try to put my focus in something recognizable, such as a structure or a pattern.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
GP: A mix from a relaxed feeling to a hunger for more.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
GP: A proud feeling.

FS: What makes a design successful?
GP: For me a design is already successful when people start talking about it and it becomes recognizable.

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
GP: The aesthetic element of the object.

FS: Where does the design inspiration for your works come from? How do you feed your creativity? What are your sources of inspirations?
GP: For my designs this can be from objects that I encounter when I am on the road to just something that arises in my own world of thought.

FS: How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
GP: I would describe my design style as rather sober but still elegant with the necessary attention to the recognition of the object.

FS: What is your "golden rule" in design?
GP: that I would like to buy it for myself and that it can be used

FS: What skills are most important for a designer?
GP: creative, little technical insight and 3D drawing experience

FS: Designing can sometimes be a really time consuming task, how do you manage your time?
GP: I usually try to design in the evening, also because designing is not my main occupation at the moment. in the evening I also find all the rest that is needed to bring this to a successful conclusion

FS: How long does it take to design an object from beginning to end?
GP: It is difficult to give a definitive answer to this. some designs take time to mature and are still regularly adjusted until they are really to my liking. this is about designs without a time limit and without a customer. Other designs immediately come to life on the drawing board as I had it in my head for some time and usually not much changes over time

FS: What is the most frequently asked question to you, as a designer?
GP: Can you tell something about your design

FS: What was your most important job experience?
GP: a collaboration with Boffi / Depadova

FS: Who are some of your clients?
GP: Boffi/Depadova

FS: What type of design work do you enjoy the most and why?
GP: Ideally, I would like to design furniture or accessories, because this is most close to my daily work as a furniture maker.

FS: What are your future plans? What is next for you?
GP: recently i was in contact by a furniture brand to design a collection like a table and chair etc.

FS: Do you work as a team, or do you develop your designs yourself?
GP: I develop my designs by myself

FS: How can people contact you?
GP: info@gunther-pelgrims.be
