Did you say ‘stainless steel’?
Pol Quadens was born in Brussels. His father was active in the fields of composites and metal industry, and Pol is therefore surrounded by the world of materials since his early childhood. After his artistic studies, he starts restoring vintage cars. This experience makes him gain strong practical skills and deep knowledge of all types of materials.
He makes his first creations and production of objects in 1987. His sensitivity and passion for the arts lead him to the creation of functional artworks. His CD shelf has sold more than 100,000 pieces and has become iconic in its category.
In 2017 he signs his iconic « Infinity » bookshelf, an entirely handmade stainless steel piece which has required more than 400 hours of work. In addition to his designer activities, Pol Quadens shifts also towards art and monumental sculpture.
The installation of the Flint 2020 in Switzerland in June is a success. During the Covid 19 time he worked hard on a new creation, the ‘Lockdown Bench’ in stainless steel.
