Mathias De Ferm Collection
Mathias De Ferm (1985) is a product and furniture designer from Antwerp, Belgium. Collaborating with renowned international brands, his work includes furniture, products, lighting and micro-architecture.
His work is characterized by a strong belief in the social relevance of design. A dining table, for instance, is not limited to its practical qualities. It forms the social centerpiece of a home: a place where people gather to eat, drink and talk with each other. This idea led to a serene yet warmhearted aesthetic and the frequent use of durable materials.
By creating extensive product and furniture series, Mathias developed a holistic design approach. Each collection has a well thought out function that results in a singular design personality.
Mathias studied product development at AP Antwerpen and furniture design at Thomas More Mechelen. Eager to learn more about materials and techniques, he earned additional degrees in metalwork and carpentry.
In 2010, he started working as an independent designer for a variety of clients: furniture collections, innovative barbecues, custom-made outdoor buildings, cook- and tableware… Several of these projects were awarded at leading design competitions. In addition, Mathias designed a number of residential and commercial interiors.
