Tomás Alonso, the vaalbeek project

The Vaalbeek project salon setting is a foretaste to the Vaalbeek house, a project which includes an in depth refurbishment of a modest forest edge house in Belgium with an interior entirely redesigned by Tomás Alonso. The aim is to rival historic overall homes and elevate it into a true contemporary setting realized through Tomás's meticulous and extensive custom tailored designs.

Tomás' method can be summed up as an intelligent morphological synthesis of a technicist type, his own line of elegant, linear and poetic objects, focused on functionality and materiality as absolute values turned into full interiors. Read more

About Tomás Alonso

Tomás Alonso is a cosmopolitan craft designer born in Spain. Initially he has been influenced by the resounding but very concise charm of the pioneers of the Modern Movement, from Weimar to Milan. He eventually opted for a Master's at the Royal College of Art in London after a decade of study and professional practice in the USA, Australia and Italy which merged into a clear and pragmatic vision of life, soon translated into his own line of elegant, linear and poetic objects finding his own dimension in the field of the authorial design. His method can be summed up as an intelligent morphological synthesis of a technicist type, focused on functionality as an absolute value and turned into an idea for products which are quick and easily understandable into their constitutive elements. The very simple aesthetic qualities of his objects reveal the expressive potential of materials - his main source of inspiration - conveying an expressive immediacy which makes his work universal and transgenerational.
