DNA

Bringing ideas to life.

From the origins...

Quite a long time ago, a simple man with simple rules inspired Dirk Cousaert (1960, Oudenaarde). His name was Kamiel, son of a mill restorer. "You can create anything you want", he said. "As long as you do it with passion and an eye for detail." And even though Dirk Cousaert studied electro mechanics, he fell in love with the beauty of wood, old furniture and ancient assembly techniques.

Dirk Cousaert started his career with the small-scale production of furniture for friends and family. In addition he concentrated on the restoration of antiques. By the turn of the century he was more than ready for his own creation of tables, cabinets, kitchens, doors, stairs and art objects.

Team

...to Re-increations

Ever since then, Dirk Cousaert has been building his own world of singular creations. Some of them are Re-increations. A limited and numbered line of unique pieces, devised the other way round: the material determines the shape, the shape determines the purpose. Anything can be the starting point: a weather-beaten pile from the sea, a broken tram track, a forgotten quarry stone with a fossil print or a grid from an old industrial building.

Dirk Cousaert reshapes history into a new and exciting future. He restores the material. Combines it with the warmth of wood. Contrasts it with metal, glass or synthetic materials. Then becomes now. Now becomes then. A perfect circle to celebrate life.


The essence of a stilt house

Dirk Cousaert is always looking for the essence of things. That’s why he and his family live in a simple stilt house with a shower outside, between the branches of an old tree. It may sound romantic, but in wintertime that is not the word that comes to your mind.

For Dirk Cousaert it’s all about going deep. About not being afraid of the miserable, the ugly, the raw. Because those turn out to be the most profound experiences.

How we work

Dirk Cousaert and his team of 25 equally passionated craftsmen work in three different expert centers: DC Ideation, DC Design and DC Atelier. Depending on the nature of a project, each of these departments can be engaged separately, or successively from the conception of an idea to the completed piece of furniture or space.

DC Ideation

DC Ideation

This is the idea lab where ideas and concepts are moulded. It's all about inspiration and impulses, combined with expertise and skills. This phase is an intense and personal collaboration between team members and clients. What do they want? What's their story? What are the specifics of the space in question? To bring our philosophy into your environment. Everything together comes alive in a true DC design.

DC Design

DC Design

In this department an idea or project gets its concrete form. DC Design works with our experienced designers who live and breathe the true Dirk Cousaert style. DC Design can support architects and interior architects in a very early stage of working out a concept towards a project.

DC Atelier

DC Atelier

The "made in Belgium" workshop where designs are transformed into completed projects is DC Atelier. This team takes great care in bringing plans to perfection. These skilled and experienced craftsmen build and install unique furniture, living spaces and home-designed constructions in steel, oak and blue stone. Always according to authentic principles and with the highest quality standards.
