Ariane van Dievoet is the designer behind AVANDI. Recently back in Brussels, she’s currently exploring new techniques and materials, in order to revitalize architectural elements in her new collection of objects.
After studying in Cambridge, London, and Providence (USA), she founded her studio in Brooklyn, NY in 2014. Trained as an interior architect, Ariane is interested in the relationship between each object and its surroundings, using simple lines and shapes to create timeless minimal pieces. The result is a selection of home goods & jewelry designed in house and produced locally. First featured at the Salone Satellite in Milan, she received the 3rd prize of the Salone Satellite Award for Steptool, a minimalist kitchen ladder. Exhibited in Brussels, Colognes, London, Miami, New York, Paris and Toronto, her creations have been noticed by Monocle, Elle Decor Italia, Sight Unseen and Domus, among others. In addition to designing furniture and objects, Ariane works as a freelance designer.
