Kerstens is a multidisciplinary design studio with a clear vision on architecture, interior- , furniture and product design. The studio was founded by Andy Kerstens in 2015 and is based in Antwerp, Belgium. Andy graduated in 2015 as a Master of Science in Interior Architecture at the University of Antwerp.

“Our thorough design language focusses on a refined, timeless and architectural approach, with a desire for craftsmanship and affinity for the atmospheric qualities. We strive for purified, yet detailed and consistent designs, combined with rich natural materials for a warm and sober ambiance. The dialogue between interior design, unique objects, collectible design, intriguing art and tactile materialization results in contrast to a larger architectural whole and leads to a deeper human emotion. Our work exudes a certain serenity, resulting in a merely monochrome and timeless signature, combined with a touch of understated luxury.
Each assignment is unique and analyzed extensively to obtain a balanced basis for the concept and its further elaboration. Research into the program, use, context, architectural whole, layout and proportion, light and space, and materialization are indispensable for the process. Our vision is to create complete projects where every element, till the last details are devised to become a harmonious design. This is applicable on all scales and types of projects, being it a full residential interior design, a piece of furniture or a more corporate office or retail space.”
