Who?
In this series The List talks to cultural innovators about what inspires them. Artists and entrepreneurs let us in on the places and people that define their esthetic playground. First in line are top interior designers Rik and Sylvie Ruebens. From their homebase Knokke (Belgium), they work on projects all over Europe. With a sober, pure vision on the role of design, they embody a new breed of interior designers focussing on a mix between comfort and esthetics. “Harmony with a twist,” summarizes a smiling Rik Ruebens. 

Swipe for what inspires Rik and Sylvie… and get a full list of 14 of their hidden treasures for inspiration in the The List print special we made on them.

RR Interior Concepts

Whatsky?
“I think we’re being a bit too modest in Belgium sometimes. Fashion designer Dries Van Noten has his own retrospective in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Belgian models, curators and artists work on an international level, and architects like Glen Sestig and Vincent Van Duysen travel are on the top of their game… We are working on international projects more and more and it’s clear that this creativity and taste is very much a Belgian thing, and appreciated all over the globe.”

the jane
- Site ‘t Groen Kwartier, Paradeplein, 2018 Antwerp

Whatsky?
When parking your butt in the brand-new, lavish jade green chairs in the much acclaimed The Jane restaurant by Sergio Herman, don’t forget to think about Rik Ruebens. He’s the one who choose to put this classic by Antonio Citterio in the lower dining area at The Jane. “A cullinary experience of this level deserves a chair that combines comfort and beauty.”

The High Line
- New York, NY 10011, thehighline.org

Whatsky?
Built on an abandoned railway track, the space is ingenious in its use of reclaimed industrial detritus, a necessity in footage-starved Manhattan. The pathway takes you above the city while keeping you rooted in urban life: Where else can you walk through a field of wildflowers or sprawl on a lush lawn as cabs zoom along the street beneath you?
“This is one of the first places we visit when staying in New York.”
